Two-train pile-up in southeastern Minnesota

A massive cleanup is under way in Dresbach, Minn., after two trains from the Canadian Pacific Railway smashed head-on. Channel 5 got helicopter footage of the wreckage. All in all, 26 rail cars and one locomotive were thrown from the tracks like a child’s plaything. You just have to watch this video for yourself.  One of the veterans interviewed in the story has a great reaction when asked about the scene. This isn’t the first accident this year; there have already been six others in Minnesota.
