Friday afternoon, I was editing images and chatting with my co-workers in our litle photo room when we heard the all-call signal over the scanner. A train had struck a car.
The three of us rushed to the scene to find a partially-smashed car and a stopped Amtrak train that was apparently heading out of town.
We arrived before the paramedics and learned from the throng of bystanders what happened. Luckily, none of the three passengers in the car sustained life-threatening injuries.
The following is one of my favorite images from the wreck, giving a different perspective:
