Simple mix-ups occur on a day-to-day basis in all places of work. In the medical profession, the repercussions can be devastating.

Elderly couple killed in freak bridge collapse

It's a seemingly normal day and at first glance, apparently uneventful driving conditions. The last thing on one couple's mind was watching out for a freight train hurtling down a cliff towards their vehicle after falling off a bridge.

The crash made the incident nationwide news after a freight train hauling coal on the viaduct in record-breaking 100 plus degree heat plunged off the bridge. Witnesses to the north reportedly watching as the cars slowly rumbled off the tracks, down a precipice, over the bridge and ended up in billowing plumes of black coal dust.
