Tornado Causes Train Derailment

This was taken right after the train derailed at 9:04 on January 7, 2019, at One Mile Road and Susan Street in Dexter, MO. Either a tornado or strong winds caused the passing train sections to derail. The sudden stop caused the section to get disconnected from the rest of the train but the forward momentum propelled the rear cargo containers into the derailed sections and caused the devastation.
