It’s been said nothing can stop a speeding train.
Well I beg to differ.
Mother nature not only stops a train in this week’s video selection, she blows one off the track .
During a storm in January 2008, featuring 165 mph winds, a train was traveling through McHenry County, Ill., and unsuspectedly into the path of a tornado.
There was a video camera mounted to the back of the locomotive.
The sky appears to be partly cloudy, sun shining…an otherwise nice day.
Within a mile or two, the situation gets ugly.
Rain, followed by blowing debris starts to come into view, when all of a sudden part of the train gets blown off the track.
The locomotive comes to a stop, and gets plowed into by a tanker car carrying hazardous materials.
No one was seriously hurt in the crash, or the tornado.
