08/31/08 83 W - + 12 - 11 Click to Watch a Train Wreck

This might be the same video that Dave Statter has linked in his video round-up, just longer and with audio. Three minutes of riding the rails, then an open switch sends the coal train plowing into freight cars on a spur track. Occurred in Cactus, TX, on October 9, 2006.Two crewmen injured, 26 cars and 2 locomotives derailed, and damages greater than a million dollars. As the saying goes, it's hard to turn away from watching a train wreck.

lucky it was only carrying coal and not yellow phosphorus like the train derailment near lviv, ukraine in 2007
