Then you should do as I did and follow the direct link from the video. BBC Worldwide doesn't allow embedding of their videos:

London Underground - Moorgate Train Crash & Kings Cross Fire

It was quite a while ago when the crash at Moorgate happened (1975), but I think it is the deadliest accident on the London Underground (29 killed and they still don't know what happened!). A 1938 TS Train failed to stop at the terminal platforms at Moorgate and crashed into the tunnel end wall. The fire is King Cross coming second...27 died, as it started due to passengers smoking...

Gare de Lyon (underground) accident. June 27, 1988

A passenger pulled the emergency brake on a delayed suburban train outside Gare de Lyon. While releasing the brakes, the driver of the train made a grave mistake, and the train continued but nearly without functional brakes. In the downward slope to the under ground part of the Gare de Lyon station the train ran away due to the brake failure, and at high speed it hit a train ready for departure.
Prior to the collision attempts were made to evacuate the stationary train, but there was not enough time. There were many people at the platform as well, and some of them were killed too.

that sucks.
i'd generally like to completely ignore the possibility of an accident in public transport.
you should (or not :0) show some photos from the recent accident of the bus full of Russian tourists that crashed in the Arava. terrible stuff.

iv'e been thinking of a new type of digital tachometer.
a tachometer is a machine that measures the speed of the bus, or truck.
the point is that if a driver is speeding you can later see in the tachometers output.

Budapest... Following a collision with a car, the bus broke the barrier of the bridge. Fortunately it didn't fell down since a pipe held it. It had to be put back on the road by a crane:
