Hard to tell from the inside view. It looks as though the cab partitions are bowed, but that's from the perspective that the outer wall looks ok, but clearly the left outer wall was caved in.

If you go back to Andre's post, probably all 12 cars are now candidates for the scrapper, but it doesn't appear that the NTSB process is over. In that, besides being wrecked, the Brief points out that the 4 cars were laid up for troubleshooting, and water was found in the control system of two, you know they are on the do not repair list once NTSB releases them.

If you figure the center took the force of the impact, I guess it is possible the sides could bow like that. Looks like the center pushed in and the sides sort of stayed in place. You can see tearing by the right side motorcab window partition area and the operators door probably can't close. They probably can't even close the motorman's windows cause the frame is bent out.

No doubt it will soon be on it's way to 63rd, but if you figure they are running 40 cars to 63rd with new #5000's, then they should have 40 to Skokie trips with #3200's or retired #2600 cars plus if they wanted to bring in some completed #3200's rehabs, that's probably 8-16 more cars on the return list. So what that's two months of moves? It looks like they may be moving now until the Yellow line opens or close to it.

Just went by the shop and boy #1711 is in complete hell. The entire right side of the frame and the door is severely damaged (similar to #1147). I couldn't get a shot of it because I'm in a rush to get to work on time.

There's an accident involving a car and Nova #7918 on Halsted south of 23rd Street. Photos by Jessyca Malina via Twitter.

Just passed by the area; there's still some heavy traffic on Canal due to the detour.

that’s 8015

I don't understand why people just won't stay home at that time of night and to rob an operator and flee on foot just doesn't make any sense.I'm pretty sure the offender lives in the area to.

Does anyone know any more details? This is the first I’m hearing of this

edit: is this the car that becomes 3457-8? Also, those windows are amazing!

3457 and 3458 were in existence before this accident.   There was a period when the Blue Line was suffering from many incidents including this one, a derailment in the subway, a car fire in the subway,  and the infamous crash into the escalators at the O'Hare station.
