Review of Tragedy at Cajon Pass DVD

 4 of 5 (1)
The True Story of the Duffy Street Incident
Find out what happened on the fateful day of May 12, 1989 when a 69-car Southern Pacific freight train went out of control on California's steep Cajon Pass and careened off the tracks into a residential neighborhood at 90 miles an hour. Shot by a camera crew who arrived on the scene even before the rescue workers, this dramatic video captures the whole story. See:
Tons of heavy steel crumpled like aluminum foil
Freight car wheels turned blue from the intense heat of braking
The train's potash cargo covering the landscape with a ghostly white shroud
Heart-stopping moments of heroism as railroad and fire department crews struggle to free victims from the wreckage
Contains graphic materials and may not be suitable for some audiences.
