Rail Crash in Los Angeles
A rail crash in Los Angeles resulted in 25 deaths and 135 injuries Sunday. The dispatcher warning the conductors of the train reached the conductors too late for the train to stop before colliding with a freight train.
Among those killed is the engineer of the train. Injuries included partially severed limbs, according to Dr. Marc Eckstein, medical director for the Los Angeles Fire Department.
"It was the deadliest passenger train crash since Sept. 22, 1993, when Amtrak's Sunset Limited plunged off a trestle into a bayou near Mobile, Ala., moments after the trestle was damaged by a towboat; 47 people were killed," according to AOL News.
