Metra, Friggatriskaidekaphobia: Hot Trends

Updated from 9:33 a.m. EDT with recent trending search topics.

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- "Metra" is a heavily searched topic after a truck driver was killed when a Chicago commuter train collided with a tractor trailer in Mount Prospect, Ill. on Friday morning, according to a Metra spokesperson.

At around 8:45 a.m. CST, the inbound train 636 on Metra Union Pacific's Northwest Line hit the truck at an intersection.

"The accident resulted in the death of the truck driver and some passengers reported minor injuries," Metra CEO Alex Clifford said in a statement on the agency's Web site. "The engineer of the train was also injured and taken to a local hospital."

The accident resulted in several delays on the Metra, which serves six counties in the Chicago area.






"Friggatriskaidekaphobia," or the fear of Friday the 13th, is a trending Google search topic.

Some believe the superstition that Friday the 13th is a day of bad luck. Friday falls on the 13th at least once every year, but can occur up to three times a year.

Friggatriskaidekaphobia is derived from merging the words "Frigga" and "paraskevidekatriaphobia." "Friday" is believed to be named after Frigga, the Norse goddess of love and marriage, and triskaidekaphobia is the word for the fear of the number thirteen.






"Citizens Bank" is a trending search topic Friday following the news that the Philadelphia Flyers will host the 2012 Winter Classic at Citizens Bank Park, on Jan. 2.
