The texting trolley driver that caused an accident in Boston is transgender. Forty six people were injured in the crash. He was texting his girlfriend at the time of the collision.
...Aidan Quinn, is a female-to-male transsexual, according to a May 11 ABC News story.
The ABC News item reported that Quinn had been hired as a minority on the basis of his transition to male from female [sic], even though his driving record showed that Quinn had been issued three tickets for speeding.
The ABC News story also notes that the 24-year-old Quinn had referred to himself as one of the first transsexual employees to be hired by the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority, which oversees the subway system.
The best part? The Boston subway/trolley system is locally referred to as "The T." Seriously.
