    Default PE: Train derails

    Herald Port Elizabeth

    Chaos erupted near the PE train station when a train travelling from Bloemfontein to the city derailed just before noon.

    It is believed that the track broke causing the train to derail. Two people were seriously injured and taken to hospital.

    A second accident occurred when a fire truck rolled on the way to the scene. Three people travelling in the fire truck were injured and also taken to hospital.


    Sidon Road:

    Luckily the train was travelling very slowly as it was very close to the main station.

    Wow! McD town is in a accidental mess today! I am sure the FB was not traveling slowly, how did that happen.

    Reminds me of an incident years ago where a new fire engine was in the local paper the Friday and during the first veld fire action during the weekend it burned out and featured in a photo the following week. Apparently the wind turned!

    That turn to the right (Darling Street under M17 bridge into Sidon Road) is pretty tight. FB either nudged the kerb going into the corner or took it too fast.
