Default Southbound Juice train hits truck in Florida

I didnt have my camera with me, but I just passed the southbound empty juice train Q741 on the Yeoman Sub near Plant City FL (around CENTRAL), it had just hit a loaded dump truck at an unsignaled grade crossing. Dirt and stuff ALL over the lead unit, a 5200 series ES44dc. Everything upright, didnt look like much damage to Locomotive, the truck looked pretty bad.

Will update later.

Yes. Please come back with all of the "juicy" details. Sorry, couldn't resist after the call that we had in our county earlier. Just one of those moods.

Seriously. Hope no one was injured, and little damage was done.

I would be beside myself. First question, why is a photographer going out without a camera?



It would be like a baseball player going out without a glove, a train without an engine, a police officer without a two way radio, a polictician without a lie...

Where I work, I park in a public parking lot, so I dont leave shit in my car for fear of it getting stolen, and it's a hassle to drag it to/from work every day. I was on the way home from work at the time.

What is interesting about this, within 5 miles each way of this location a person (pedestrian) has died in the last 2 months. One in plant city and one in dade city. I'm not sure if this guy died or not yet, but this is unprecedented carnage from stupid people.
