Train derails, many Ford F-150s are destroyed

A large batch of Ford F-150s were being shipped to dealerships when a major derailment destroyed them.

An accident that Ford would have done well

Among them, the F-150 is an undisputed success and regularly ranks among the best-selling models. Many pick-ups had been assembled and all that remained was to transport them to their owner. But a terrible accident happened.

A train of 33 wagons transporting a large batch of American “trucks” was derailment victim important. It is indicated by the authorities that this train was transporting wheat but also a large number of the Ford pickup. With such an accident, it is the probable loss of several hundred F-150s which is to be deplored.

A disaster near an assembly line

The cars probably came from the Kansas City assembly lines located near the derailment site. They are not, however, about to arrive at their destination.. Missouri Highway Patrol has confirmed that no injuries are fortunately to report. Authorities also said there was no toxic vapor. A railway employee indicates that this incident will require “A few days of cleaning”.

In addition to the Ford F-150, some Transit vans manufactured in the same factory were also victims of the derailment.
