Catastrophe on the railway

Description

On the afternoon of July 26, 2008, two trains collide near St. Petersburg. Railway accidents tend to spike in Russia during the summertime, when more trains are pressed into service to accommodate people taking their summer vacations. Here, a passenger train smashes into a freight train as the passenger train is being shifted to a different track.
