Waste Train

Doesn't it suck when this happens?

STRASBOURG, France, Nov 7 (AFP) - An anti-nuclear protester died in northeastern France Sunday after being run over by a train carrying nuclear waste from France to Germany, regional authorities said.
The 21-year-old man, who had chained himself to the railway near the city of Nancy, lost a leg after he was crushed by the train and died despite receiving emergency treatment at the scene.
The authorities said the accident happened in the early afternoon in the town of Avricourt after a group of eight people gathered near the main Paris to Strasbourg line, on which the nuclear transport train was travelling.
"After coming out of a corner at reduced speed, the train was apparently confronted with the group, which moved out of the way with the exception of one person, who was hit," a police statement said
