3 dead in Scotland train derailment as aerial view shows scale of damage

Three people were killed in a train derailment in eastern Scotland on Wednesday in what U.K. Transport Minister Grant Shapps called a “very tragic incident.”

Aerial images revealed the scale of the damage, showing overturned carriages near Stonehaven, just south of the city of Aberdeen, after a ScotRail train derailed on Wednesday morning following heavy rain overnight.

PA Media said three people were believed to have died in the accident while a fourth was missing. Police confirmed that three people had been pronounced dead at the scene, one of whom was the driver.

Stonehaven and the surrounding area had been hit by floods in recent days and some reports suggested a landslide may have played a part in the derailment, although that was not confirmed by the authorities.

    Damn right we have questions. We've been running trains for 200 years, why do we still have accidents?

    The main thing of interest for everyone coming here to view this is: What caused the train to derail? That's all we care about…even though we all suspect we know the answer and the truth will be obfuscated. Someone ask Sadiq Khan. I hear he has his ear to the ground. Interesting that the reporter's audio was cut at 2:02 just as he was going to say something that someone did not want us to hear.

    I know Canadian and US infrastructure is over 50 years old, some even over 100 years old. Badly in need of investment, maintenance and replacement. How is Scottish infrastructure?
