Amtrack Acela Hits A Woman On The Tracks! - Graphic - July 28, 2010, 12:24 PM

Just got this from my friend who was on the train! He snapped it after they pulled into Union Station.

I expect to read/see more stories about this later today. He's got the only hi-rez picture of the train right now. Probably going to get a call and an offer from the AP.

I'm guessing cowcatchers don't provide any advantages at 150mph. The messed up thing is that we continued on that train all the way to Union Station after the "incident involving a fatality" in East Trenton. The really messed up thing is that I don't think anyone minded; changing trains takes time.
Edit: Stories trickling in.

Damn the fox was too late.


What do you value more? Life or Image?

Not horrible, but it would have been great to have a "graphic" in the title.


How's my posting? Please direct all concerns and inquiries to DCSBN's chief content manager, Hollywood, via PM.

I assure you he does NOT have the only image. Considering I'm in charge of cleanup on that train. I got pics of the nosecone, and parts of her hanging from the under carriage.


Then again... That's just me.

And now...The dancing Banana:
