This was one of the first rail wrecks that I was aware of that made a huge fiery mess. I am not completely sure what it was carrying but it was a tank car train. I felt it was crude oil but there are conflicting stories on the web now as to whether it was crude or ethanol gas. 

I just remember how shocked I was to see such a fiery crash from a R/R wreck.

I was there for this one. I had to detour around the mess because it shut down the interstate and all roads around it so all could be clear for the public service responders.
