15th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
Oil Car Derailment #8673

A pile up of 6-8 Oil Rail Cars came off of the Tracks in Mosier, Oregon within the Columbia River Gorge. It was one of those very “FEW” days that the WIND was NOT Blowing (usually the normal windy days are from 20-45 mph). Because of this rare condition, this community of 430 people was saved from being completely destroyed !!!!!
