Coal Train Derails After Colliding With Dump Truck.

Unread post by Jochs »

A dump truck driver was killed in Lincoln County Missouri yesterday when a coal train collided with his truck. The impact split the truck in two, and derailed the train, spilling coal everywhere.

Bad wreck for sure, but I guess we can all be glad it wasn't a unit oil or ethanol train. At least coal doesn't explode after impact.
