I'm not a train wreck photo fan but this sure looks like something on some one's model train layout. Hope nobody was hurt.

Wow, what a mess. Thanks for showing us this neat photo.

How did the bridge beam come to be in the path of the train? Was the train “off-roading”?

Must have punctured at least one fuel tank, going by the rainbow sheen in the creek.

Hope the Crew OK ! Is that Diesel Spillage in the creek ?

Video of this happening on YT. Unreal. Good news is, report said no serious injuries

There is video of the impact itself on the web

There's a video on You Tube showing the train hitting the large concrete I-beam. Nasty wreck.

Someone captured a video of the grade crossing collision. The only thing that worked in the crew's favor was that the bridge beam was concrete.

It punctured 4067's fuel tank, and I noticed that the frame might be damaged (GAME OVER for that locomotive I guess). The rails were bent by that concrete load

The video of this is on the B.B.C. website. Would a long truck load like that not have needed an escort who could have made sure he did not obstruct the track?

Ouch, I saw the video of this. 4067 looks probably done for.
