Low Bridge Opens Up Tops of Train Cars Like Sardine Cans, Destroys New Vehicles Within

Another indication, if one was needed, that 2020 will go down in history for all the wrong reasons: a video has surfaced of a train losing the rooftops of many of its cars as it passes under a bridge. Here’s the incredible video of the incident that happened recently outside of Memphis, Tennessee:

At first glance this seems completely unbelievable. The train was rolling on an existing track, under a bridge that presumably has seen countless numbers of trains pass underneath it without incident. Why would a train’s cars all of a sudden be too high to pass under that bridge?

A closer look at the train, however, shows that one car’s roof was already largely ripped up before it passes under the bridge. That torn-up roof stuck up further than normal and thus caught on the bridge, Then a domino effect wreaked havoc on the following cars. Keep in mind that a train can often take a kilometre or more to come to a full stop.
