In the middle of their luggage, the passengers of a train which connected the cities of Chicago to Seattle, watch one of the wagons which completely overturned. At around 4 p.m. Saturday, September 25, a train derailed in northern Montana. They were 157 on board, including 16 crew members. Three people died.

The survivors were taken to a high school near the scene of the accident, where they were taken care of. “The train rocked about 45 degrees and then continued to fall. I grabbed the table and my legs were hanging off the air.”, says a passenger. An investigation has been opened to determine the cause of this derailment. The rail network suffers from chronic underfunding in the United States and fatal accidents occur regularly.
