Last Friday in Kent, Washington, a train hit a car transporter stopped on the rails. Nobody was injured in the incident, but the train engine made off with a sweet new Cadillac DTS hood ornament.
The circumstances of the accident aren't clear, but the impact smacked two cars off the carrier, and left two hundred gallons of diesel fuel from the semi-truck spilled in need of clean up. One thing is certain, it's a pretty strong reminder to never mix it up with trains. More amusingly for us, one of the cars, a Cadillac DTS, ended up hanging off the nose of the train like some kind of giant hood ornament — with a hood ornament on it! [Seattle Times]
