Macon Telegraph reports appox. 30 cars derailed.

Large contingent of repair crews on scene. Ga 90 is being rerouted around overpass.

I was in Vienna and saw the tank cars being pulled south. Banged up pretty bad. Don't know how they didn't rupture.

It was reported that a broke rail caused the accident causing damage to the overpass. Don't know how much the overpass was damaged.

This is a copy of the derailment in Byromville, Ga. November 17th. This is a dashcam from a Dooly County Deputy.

A few more seconds and he would have been in the middle of this.

Watching a derailment happen is surreal - you have heard the air apply in emergency - yet gravity and momentum keep cars moving and continuing to collide against cars that have already come to a stop.
Never too old to have a happy childhood!
