    The guy had a death wish!


    'What joy to set police speed guns off': Spanish driver whose derailed train killed at least 80 people while travelling at 120mph in 50mph zone posted boasting Facebook photo of speedometer


    [​IMG][​IMG]



    Francisco Jose Garzon (left), one of the drivers on the train which crashed, is reported to have posted a picture on Facebook in March last year of a train speedometer at 125mph (right)

    Clearance: Rescue workers at the accident site at the entrance of Santiago de Compostela Station

    Aftermath: Rail personnel clear the area and fix the track at the site of the accident



    [​IMG]

    Wreckage: Part of the train is carried away following the horrific crash




    [​IMG]

    Twisted: The accident is the worst train accident in 30 years and television footage showed one wagon pointing upwards into the air with one of its ends twisted and disfigured



    [​IMG]

    Accident: The train jumped the tracks on a bend just before arriving in the northwestern shrine city of Santiago de Compostela


    [​IMG]

    Horrifying: At least 80 people have been killed and up to 141 injured including one Briton after a packed Spanish passenger train derailed on a bend last night



    [​IMG]

    Derailed: All eight carriages of the Madrid to Ferrol train came off the tracks near the city of Santiago de Compostela

    derailed my ass; dude was going way too fast and pulled on the front car's brakes so hard that the rest of the train was going faster than the front of the train, and it hopped the track. you can see it as it goes into the corner.

    you are aware that usually cars, trucks, ambulances, and trains are tested and rated to hold turns up to about 80% of their max possible speed? and that roads and tracks are generally banked for travel 3-4 times their max rated speed limit? generally the driver will chicken out before the vehicle fails. insurance companies demand these tolerances in order for them to agree to insure. i bet they blame it on the driver, but something else is really at fault.

    years ago i was sent to hazardous ambulance driving training from Liberty Mutual. they demonstrated to us (by soaping up a track and having us run an obstacle course at 30, 50, and 65 mph) that we could not flip the ambulance at those speeds because that model was designed and rated to hold the road up to a max of 135mph turns. I chickened out at 40mph.

    Fixed that for ye. The "within reason" rule applies here . Women can have curves, but thats not a license for guts to go hanging over belts and other such criminal abuses of god's fine work

    I wonder if those trains can have their speed automatically reduced when they travel through certain areas. :scratch:

    So did Francisco die in this crash? Looks like he deserves to have survived with full mental capability without physical sensation from the neck down.
