1-800-USA-RAIL

As if the aviation industry wasn't already in the shitter enough, here is a little something that will probably convince all of those who are on the fence about flying to just go ahead and drive anywhere. It is something I stumbled across in a case opinion while doing research from the crash case I am working on right now.
"Dr. William R. Kinklow, an FAA pathologist, testified that the three persons on board the aircraft had various multiple fractures of multiple bones, very severe head injuries, including partial decapitation and avulsion of the skull, where most of the brain was spilled out, severe chest injuries, multiple fractures of the ribs with probable compression of the chest to the extent that the heart actually burst in one victim, a tear in the major artery across the chest of the pilot, which in Dr. Kinklow's opinion indicated very severe impact on landing."


Very severe impact on landing? Really? Really?
