    My company has an office in St. Rose, LA. Here's a bit of an e-mail that I got earlier from them:

    A Kansas City Southern train with two locomotives collided with a tractor trailer directly behind our office in St. Rose about 8:30 a.m. this morning causing both engines to derail. There were no injuries although the conductor, who was in the 2nd engine, was trapped for a few minutes before being freed by onlookers before emergency workers arrived.

    I have put some pictures they sent me in my Rail Images album:

    I think the first 11 pics are of the wreck.

    You know it a bad day when your loco ends up perpendicular to the rails.
