Amtrak train derails in Nebraska

An Amtrak train with 178 people on board derailed Friday in southwestern Nebraska, the rail service said.

A few passengers were hospitalized, but there were no reports of life-threatening injuries, Amtrak said in a statement.

An agricultural vehicle on the tracks caused the derailment just before 9 a.m. near the town of Benkelman, in the southwestern part of Nebraska, near the Kansas and Colorado state lines.

    In the great pattern of things you actually receive an A+ for effort and hard work. Where exactly you actually lost me personally ended up being on your facts. You know, it is said, details make or break the argument.. And that couldn't be more accurate at this point. Having said that, allow me tell you just what did deliver the results. Your writing is pretty engaging and that is probably why I am making an effort in order to comment. I do not really make it a regular habit of doing that. 2nd, while I can certainly notice a leaps in logic you make, I am not really certain of exactly how you appear to connect your ideas that produce the actual final result. For now I will subscribe to your position but wish in the foreseeable future you actually connect the facts much better.
