    PA - Amtrak train from Washington crashes in Philadelphia

    PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- An Amtrak train has crashed in Philadelphia, and several people appear to be injured.

    Train 188 was traveling from Washington, D.C., to New York City on Tuesday night when it crashed.

    The front of the train was going into a turn when it shook.

    An Associated Press employee on the train says it appears the train went off the tracks.

    CNN is covering this live. Looks like a major crash. Helicopter coverage shows scores of first-responders are combing the ground with flashlights.

    Photos on twitter are crazy! Here's one from a local news station. It looks like some of the cars just denigrated. http://www.myfoxla.com/story/29048426/amtrak-train

    What I find strange about this report is pictures of the Amtrak locomotive ( A GE model P42DC ) shows the locomotive to be intact. If it slammed into the CSX train I would expect extensive damage. What I do see from other pictures is one car that appears to have disintegrated - almost as if there was an explosion (never seen this with simple derailment). According to reports the "business class" coach's "took the brunt". Pure speculation on my part but I wonder if a bomb was put on board this car?

    This is what caught my attention. What would cause the car to just disintegrate? Also I see no evidence from the various photo's of the CSX freight train that supposedly crashed into it.

    I'm following a person on twitter who was on the train, hoping to learn more from him.

    Here is a picture of the car that has disintegrated. No doubt there will have been fatalities in this car

    Also in this picture notice no evidence of the CSX frieight train. Hmmm
