A Train Tipped Over in De Soto

A Train Tipped Over in De Soto

There was a train wreck in De Soto, MO yesterday, but while it sounds horrible everything’s ok. No one was hurt, and when the guys got off the train to take a look at what happened, De Soto’s population nearly doubled. Unfortunately they’re stuck with cleaning up all the spilled cargo.

Mark Davis, a spokesman for Union Pacific Railroad, said the 58-car freight train was transporting ballast rock (the kind that lines railroad tracks) from Iron Mountain, Mo., in St. Francois County to St. Louis when it derailed.

No way! You’re already on rail road tracks! Just smooth anything that spilled out with a rake and lets go get some lunch!

The only way to get rid of a train wreck faster would be to run a bath and leave some cocaine next to it.
