Two trains collided head-on in western Switzerland on Monday evening, injuring 35 people, five of them seriously.

The collision occurred in Granges-pres-Marnand at around 7pm.

Heavy machinery was being used late on Monday evening to try to free a missing driver believed to be trapped in the cab of his train.

Photographs published by Swiss media underlined the force of the crash,with engines of the trains wrecked and wrapped together.

This shouldn't be happening...UNLESS there's some hacking of systems going on that we're not being told about.

So far, most of the train wrecks were due to speeding. And not just speeding a little, like twice to three times the speed they should have been going. damned.gif

Our so called technological progress is actually just another form of socially accepted mass murder...

Car accidents kill a child every 3 minutes...

1,200,000 people killed every year...

50,000,000 injured every year...

Theres always been lots of train accidents...

There always will be as long as theres lots of trains...

Metal and human flesh dont go very well together...

These lists of all known train crashes (many thousands of them) are overwhelming and eye opening and frightening...

Quote:December 1, 1938 - A late-running D&RGW freight, "The Flying Ute", hits a school bus during a blinding snowstorm near 300 West and 10600 South in Sandy, Utah, killing 25 of 39 students plus the bus driver in the worst railroad crossing accident in United States history. The accident caused subsequent changes in school bus regulations to require that in addition to stopping the bus at RR crossings, the school bus door is to be opened by the driver to be able to hear an approaching train.

The ripped and torn bodies of numerous little children were dragged and crushed and thrown up and down all along the blood soaked tracks and many of them were still alive and their horrific screams faded away into withering moans as death slowly silenced them forever one by one...

Our so called technological progress is actually just another form of socially accepted mass murder...

So an elite few can maintain their wealth and power and stranglehold around the ways they force so many of us to live and die...

Quote:January 22, 1927 – Round Rock, Texas: A bus carrying the Baylor University basketball team to a game at the University of Texas at Austin takes a grade crossing just as an International-Great Northern train approaches. Evasive action is taken, but the bus skids on the rain-soaked road surface directly into the path of the train. 10 players are killed, 12 injured. To this day Baylor honors them as the "Immortal Ten

These terrible accidents are nothing new...

Heres what a bus looks like after being hit by a train...

Just imagine what the severely injured and killed people looked like...
