Train Collision

Another travel-first. Caught the shinkansen from Kyoto up to the lab this evening. Just as we were pulling out of Nagoya the driver threw the emergency brake. Apparently a passenger came running up to the train a couple of seconds after we took off and launched full speed into the side. We had to wait a few minutes while the station staff checked for dents in the door. Both passenger and train seemed okay, but they refused to let the guy on. He didn't look very happy as we cruised past. Wonder if he'll get a refund?
