Loader crane rips out power lines

A slow moving train, equipped with a log loader crane, pulled out a large number of overhead power line poles as it travelled through the town of Shelton in Washington state on Thursday morning.

The destruction covered a two block area and left over 700 buildings without electricity, thankfully no one was injured, although the power lines and a pole did come down on a car trapping the driver for several hours.
