Sixteen were hurt, and of those, 12 sent to the hospital. Of those, four are out as of today, three days after the event. Eight people in the hospital at least three days? As someone who has spent up to one week in a hospital, a) I don’t envy these people their stay, nor b) their injuries.

Automobile operators: In general, tracks are okay to drive on when they’re even with the surface of the road. Once that changes, and the rails rise up, and there is no road, you’ve gone too far.
You’re doing it wrong.
