Oh crap. Literally.

Hi CJ,

How could I not send you this from tonight’s local Seattle Post-Intelligencer blog?

Oh crap, light rail service delayed
Sound Transit had to pull a light rail vehicle out of service Tuesday after a woman defecated inside as the train headed north in the Downtown Transit Tunnel.
"Some unfortunate soul peed and pooped on the train," Sound Transit spokesman Bruce Gray said. "And it was not a little accident."

At 11:05 a.m., Sound Transit sent out a rider alert: "Central Link Light Rail service from Westlake Station at 10:25 to Beacon Hill was lost due to a unsanitary train. Thanks for your patience. "

All passengers got off at the Westlake station. The train turned around and ran empty to the maintenance yard in Sodo (South Downtown), where it was cleaned. It took about 10 minutes to get a clean replacement into service, Gray said.

Passengers notified the operator about the accident.
Love the headline, eh? Here is the link, in case you’d like to read some of the comments:

Love your blog,
