Authorities say seven people have been killed and 70 injured in a subway train collision in Washington DC.

The city's mayor Adrian Fenty held a press conference where he revised an earlier reported death toll of nine.

Carriages of one of the trains came to rest on top of the other after the collision near a station during a rush hour, officials said.

The female driver of the moving train - which crashed into the back of a stationary train - was among the dead.

The crash - the worst in the 33 years of the Metro system - happened above ground between Fort Totten and Takoma at 1700 local time (2200 BST).

That's unfortunate.

"George Bush says he speaks to god every day, and christians love him for it. If George Bush said he spoke to god through his hair dryer, they would think he was mad. I fail to see how the addition of a hair dryer makes it any more absurd."

That's poor wording. Laugh Laugh Embarassed

I read that as if it was a joke, I know it wasn't but even so.

But I agree.
