Police investigating deadly train crash in Spain

An American is among the 80 people killed in the horrific train crash in northwestern Spain last night.

A security camera caught the exact moment of the crash.

The cars separated from the engine as the train attempted to negotiate the curve. Flames bursted out of one car as it left the tracks. Another was snapped in half, scattering bodies along the ground.

OutFront: David Schanoes, the Former Deputy Chief of field operations for a major commuter rail service in New York City - one of the busiest commuter railroads in the United States.

    Western Civilization, is deteriorating to a mindless lynch mob- ready to kill anyone in order to divert responsibility. This is an accident, an accident. We are really becoming barbariac animals, right before our own eyes. What happened to decency?
