man has an up close and personal view of another train accident


Yet another train has derailed in Ohio, this time in Springfield. According to reports, over 20 train cars came off the tracks, and hazmat crews were dispatched to the scene of the accident. it's amazing how this man caught the train derailment live on camera while waiting at a crossing and the visual of train cars piling into each other is striking. Despite the presence of the crews, it is reported that there were no cars carrying hazardous materials involved in the accident. residents have been ordered to shelter and there are power outages across the area. the frequency and severity of these incidents is shining a powerful spotlight on the pitiful state of infrastructure across much of this country and if drastic measures aren't taken to overhaul rail and general transportation safety reports such as these will become as common.
