SACRAMENTO – Around 7:00pm last night, an Altamont Cooridor Express (ACE) commuter train derailed in Sunol. There were 214 passengers on the train and I can only imagine the fear and anxiety that they all felt during and after this incident. Nine passengers were injured and were transported to local hospitals, the rest of the passengers were transported to the Alameda County Fairgrounds where rescue organizations, including the Red Cross, were available to assist.
While the cause of the derailment is still under investigation, preliminary investigation suggests that a mudslide caused this incident.
SACRAMENTO – Assemblymember Quirk has introduced all of his bills for the 2016 legislative session, covering a range of important issues. “This is probably one of my most diverse legislative packages to date,” he said. “This year I am working on a range of issues covering education, elections, transportation, climate change, energy, and public safety. It’s going to be a busy year but I look forward to the challenges and successes.”
