Report: Train slams into vehicle in southern Italy, killing 6

Six people died after a train slammed into a vehicle early Saturday evening in southern Italy, the nation's official news agency reported, citing investigative and other sources.

Photos taken in Rossano showed what had once been a Fiat Multipla impaled against the front of the train - mangled and largely unrecognizable - as firefighters walked along the track.

A rescuer described the scene as "appalling," according to the official ANSA news agency.

    The gross weight of most trains are so immense, in most cases, it takes a train up to a mile stopping distance to fully halt it.

    Trains have the capability to slam into most things, besides cars.

    While our Marxist government is working overtime to take our Second Amendment rights away, CNN IS mustering effort to single people out, to take thier freedom of speech away. "And don't think for a minute thier not".
