2008: A Metrolink commuter train and a Union Pacific freight train collide in the Chatsworth district of Los Angeles, killing 25 people and injuring 135. A National Transportation Safety Board investigation later found that the commuter train ran a red signal and entered a section of single track where it the freight train had been given the right of way. The NTSB faulted the Metrolink train's engineer, 46-year-old Robert M. Sanchez, for the collision, determining that he was distracted by text messages he was sending while on duty.
