What on EARTH is going on in the world these days?!
Earlier in the week, we reported on a bridge collapse in Washington State leaving three people injured, and this morning in Rockview, Missouri, a Union Pacific train somehow t-boned another freight train at an intersection, causing the former to derail, and inadvertently cause a highway overpass to collapse!
Thankfully, there no cars present during the accident, but seven are reported to have suffered minor injuries - two of whom being the conductor and locomotive engineer of one of the trains and the passengers of vehicles who drove onto the overpass later on, not seeing that the road had given out in the dark!
According to local resident Wayne Woods:
