THE COMMUTE: Last week in Part 1, we discussed city hypocrisy regarding transportation issues. The MTA isn’t innocent in this regard either.

It was revealed last week that Metro-North gave a higher priority to on-time performance than to safety, possibly contributing to last December’s fatal accident in the Bronx. Like the Department of Transportation (DOT), the MTA has long insisted that safety always comes first.

Early morning Q train commuters received an unexpected jolt after a driver lost control of an SUV, crashed through a fence and landed on top of a Q train between Church Avenue and Beverley Road, causing delays along the Brighton line.

DNAinfo reports:

The south-bound Q train had just left the Church Avenue station about 5 a.m. when the woman plowed through a fence near Albemarle Road and East 16th Street, creating a kind of ramp that allowed her to settle her front tires atop the train, according to an NYPD spokesman and a witness.

The woman who was behind the wheel walked away from the incident and still hasn’t been found, the police spokesman said.

A Twitter user, BKSHOSHANNAH, captured the aftermath on camera,which we posted above.

No injuries were reported, and a rescue train was dispatched to transfer approximately 50 commuters back to the Church Avenue train station. The SUV was removed by approximately 9:30 a.m. Fencing was being pulled from the track until just before noon.

As a result of the accident, southbound Q trains ran express from Prospect Park to Kings Highway, with the MTA notifications crediting it to a “stalled train.”

Minutes before noon, the MTA website and Twitter feed announced that local service has resumed with delays.

Here are a few more photos from the MTA’s NYCTSubwayScoop feed:
