This photo brings out a lot of emotion. Sadness to those lives that were lost, thankfulness for your safety, curiosity as to the sights and sounds of the moments before this photo, and the time afterwards. God bless those who perished, and a speedy recovery to those injured. Thank you Brock for for capturing all of this emotion. Hope you are safe and sound.

I see from the local headlines that the trucking company whose truck was involved had 19 random roadside inspections since 2010, of which there were 7 violations and 1 truck taken off the road. Looks like this is a company which should be closed down and have the book thrown at them. My condolences to all those involved.

In reply to what Nick said about knowing people that were on it.. I knew Laurette (conductor who passed away) and Richard (Assistant Conductor) extremely well. Its really sad to think that Laurette is gone for good...

Good to see you had presence of mind to run to the front, past the ripped-open and burning Superliners, and get the shot of the head-end. Glad you're okay.
