LATWELL, LOUISIANA – “I think I can, I think I can” wasn’t enough for one train in Latwell, Louisiana. That’s about 70 miles west of Baton Rouge. Over 100 people were evacuated after this scene. A 23-car train hauling hazardous chemicals derailed in Saint Landry Parish. Amazingly, no one was hurt. Meanwhile, authorities are looking into the mess.
Forget ‘laissez les bon temps rouler.’ In Louisiana, it looks like they just need to keep the les trains rouler instead.
