That's a long way down! What happened? I'm guessing there were passengers on that KMB?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tuen_Mun_Road
Bus accident near Ting Kau

In the morning of 10 July, 2003, the Neoplan Centroliner bus involved was running on route 265M of KMB towards Tin Shui Wai, Yuen Long. A lorry running in the middle lane lost control as the bus approached the junction with Tsing Long Highway. The two vehicles collided, knocking the bus towards the side of the bridge. The bus broke through the parapet, and plunged into Ting Kau Village 35 m below, resulting in 21 deaths (including the driver) and 20 injured.

Rescue operations were described as being the most challenging encountered by the fire services since the fire at Garley Building. This was due to the constraints at the site (A rural village sited on a steep hillside with no direct road access) and the sheer volume of severely wounded casualties.

The bus was later lifted back onto Tuen Mun Road and transported to the Vehicle Pound at Siu Ho Wan. It was however written off.

The lorry driver was sentenced to 18 months in jail after being found guilty of causing death by dangerous driving. It is the most serious road accident in Hong Kong history.

He later on appealed against the rulings, which were subsequently overturned. He was then found guilty of careless driving and his sentence was shortened to 6 months.

The worst one!

This is a tram crash in Prague. The Tram derails and slams into the crowd gathered at the stop on the left side of the screen. Warning Somewhat graphic.

Grab the "code" at the end of the link and put it inside youtube brackets. The code is the letters after the equal sign in the link.
YouTube doesn't have to be in caps lock.

Houston METRO is the name of the agency.

The line is called MetroRail, but everyone knows it's Light Rail.

The vast majority of accidents between light rail and motor vehicles are the fault of the driver of the motor vehicle, like this classic accident in San Francisco:



More problematic are accidents between light rail and emergency response vehicles. Both enter intersections with the expectation of having the right of way. The following are some recent incidents:

Denver, Colorado, January 2005. Ambulance knocks light rail train off the tracks.


Hillsboro, Oregon, January 2005. Light rail train demolishes fire truck.


Bloomington, Minnesota, July 2006. Ambulance collides with light rail vehicle.


Los Angeles, California, December 2006. Light rail train collides with fire truck.
