Freight Train Collision

Series 1 - Episode 3 Freight Train Collision



Two freight train collisions that happened at the same crossing within a year, the collapse of a stage at the Indiana State Fair that left seven concertgoers dead, and an explosion in New York City that leveled two buildings and killed eight people in their homes. Plus, the gaping hole that appeared on an airliner at 36,000 feet, and how engineers in Japan coped with the looming release of radioactive material.
