Train crashes into car: Fatal accident captured on video by Kentucky trainspotters

4 years ago1K views

A day of trainspotting for two men turned into witnessing a tragedy when they captured a deadly train wreck on video.

On the outskirts of Louisville, Kentucky, around 4 p.m. last Saturday, a Union Pacific freight train was on the move, hauling a line of 100 railcars stretching about three quarters of a mile long. It was moving around 60 mph as it headed towards the Buechel Avenue crossing where a few trainspotters were taking video of the trains on the line that day.

At that same moment, A white Toyota Camry with four young Bhutanese men coming from soccer practice were heading towards the crossing. Even though the crossing bells and lights were working, the driver proceeded through the junction.

Two passengers, 16-year-old Chita Chuwan and 19-year-old Suk Man Rai, were killed at the scene, after the car was dragged a half a mile down the tracks. The driver and another passenger, whose identities are being withheld, are listed in critical condition.
