At least three people were killed and about 100 injured in the Amtrak train derailment Monday.

The Amtrak was on its inaugural trip on a new service from Seattle to Portland, Oregon, when it derailed while crossing an overpass, toppling cars onto one of the busiest highways on the West Coast.

The wreck left 65-ton passenger rail cars scattered – several of them on the highway below, one tucked under the bridge it was to cross, others beside the railroad embankment and one dangling from the bridge with an end resting on the rail car that had been in front of it. In all, 13 of the train’s cars jumped the tracks, officials said.

At least five vehicles passing below on Interstate 5 – including two tractor-trailers – were heavily damaged as the rail cars from Amtrak Cascades train 501 fell from above.

  1. How long will it take for the truth to come out that this was another ANTIFA terrorists (Hillary’s gangsters) sabotaging a train causing it to derail, as they’ve confessed in Nov 2017 that they’ve derailed a train on April 20?

  2. How long would it take for the truth to come out the train was speeding along a 30 mile path at 80m/hr. and I wonder if the driver was texting at the time like a few train disasters before when the person was on his cell phone and didn’t see the sign to slow down??? Just a guess.
