A SCENE FROM HELL’: BRIDGE PARTIALLY COLLAPSES IN ARIZONA AS FIRST RESPONDERS BATTLE MASSIVE FIRE ON DERAILED TRAIN (VIDEOS)

Dozens of first responders are working to put out a fire following a Union Pacific train derailment near Tempe, Arizona. The bridge it was traveling on has partially collapsed, but no injuries have been reported.

Video and photos from the scene show massive amounts of smoke billowing from the site of the crash. Local officials say the smoke cloud is so obtrusive that it has caused traffic in nearby areas to be rerouted. Police are warning people to avoid the area.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is the kind of tragedy which happens when politicians decide that infrastructure maintenance "can be deferred" without ever considering the consequences of "deferred maintenance".
