Two cars of a crowded subway train veered off the tracks Tuesday morning and crashed into a wall in northern Manhattan, injuring dozens of people and causing panic as riders evacuated and made their way through an underground tunnel to the nearest station.

Riders relayed harrowing accounts of the train being violently jolted and then being plunged into darkness. For several frightening minutes, as sparks flew and smoke filled the cars, passengers did not know what had happened.



Looking for more info.

Per the article .

"Joseph J. Lhota, the newly named leader of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority, said the emergency brake had been activated, sending the train careening off the tracks, but he could not say why the brake had been deployed. He said all the injuries were minor."

Who has access to the E-Brakes other than the driver?

How is it the gov is giving a 1 million dollar prize instead of paying a thinktank / construction crew?

Seems like a waste of taxpayer funds.
