    I was watching a program on TV yesterday, about a 1993 railway accident on a bridge over Big Bayou Canot near Mobile, Alabama.

    Basically, a barge hit and distorted the middle span of the bridge. A few moments later the Sunset Limited express hit the distorted span, which resulted in part of the bridge (and part of the train) crashing into the river. 47 people died.
    However, the bridge was repaired in a few weeks.

    I didn't understand part of the program, so I thought a look at a map might help with the explanation. Here's what I found:

    Spooky!

    Spooky indeed!

    Looks like the bridge is going into a portal of a space/time rift.

    That's impossible. That movie has already been made. If you had said IV, well

    The bridge is actually intact and in daily use.

    It's just weird that the only apparent distortion on that picture is where the bridge collapsed.

    That crash was staged on National Geographic documentary on Dutch TV , and it was terrifying ..now this, a sort psychic imprint .

    You wont believe what I just heard on the T.V at this very moment... " A collision with a freight train..." in a film.....

    This is giving me a cold feeling, running down my neck...
