F-line to Dudley via Park wrote:News choppers on the live feed just did a 360-degree pan around the Sprinter and shone a light on it. It looks, amazingly, relatively unscathed. Doesn't appear that it struck anything. But...wow...the ties nearby have been completely stripped of rail. Staggering amount of lateral displacement.
I would put even money that the tracks it plowed through (and it looks like it plowed clear through a double track) caught it and stopped it, akin to a guardrail on a highway.
Imagine if it had kept going into the parked freight cars ... esp. if any of those contained hazmat.
As for condition - yeah, it seems in rather good shape; although the inside of the cab looks a complete mess, as is not surprising considering it had a considerable off-road excursion. Pantographs are even lowered and stowed.
Presumably, these Sprinters have event recorders ... do they have witness cameras too?
I saw one note the conductor might be missing, but I've seen nothing on condition of any of the rest of the crew (including the engineer).
