Quebec Train Explosion

Firefighters look at a train wagon on fire at Lac-Mégantic, Que., July 6, 2013. Canadian police expect the death toll from a fatal fuel train blast in a small Quebec town to be more than the one person confirmed dead so far, a spokesman said on Saturday. The driverless train and 72 tankers of crude oil jumped the tracks in the small town of Lac-Megantic early in the morning and exploded in a massive fireball.
Our investigative team has documented the monumental tragedy through the eyes of survivors and examining the causes of the crash.
