  1. This is complete neglect by the police. They had time to tape off the scene but not call tge railroad. They could have called the emergency contact number on the signal or shunted the tracks to stop the train. Instead they did neither. Turning a horrible accident into an almost worst one.

  2. Incredible clip considering the person filming was nearly decapitated by what seemed to be an engine cowl. Great footage….no deaths….many heroes. All things considered…today was a GOOD day.

  3. Idiot pilot landed on an active rail line. Could have killed hundreds of people

  4. Where were those "heroes" of BLM and Antifa when this happened? Notice how they've disappeared since "Crooked Joe" and his phony baloney cronies stole the Presidential election?

  5. Wow
    Your train Don't slow down in residential areas…
    What kind Laws does this country follows…

  6. This is sad all the money train companies are making they still can't stop them on time pilot could of died by train after surviving a plane with automobiles standing by watching smh.

  7. With the furiously flying debris from the train's impact with the downed plane, the individual(s) filming were lucky they weren't instantly killed.
    Glad to hear the pilots survived — thanks to the heroics of the officers (?and bystanders too?).
    Will be interesting to hear results of why the plane went down.

    This footage is a reminder to all — when Metrolink's crossing arms are down DON'T try to 'go around' and / or 'beat the train.' Odds are you'll lose; there's no 'wiggle room' with a speeding locomotive pulling half a dozen cars.

    Thanks, ABC7.
