    Derailment In US Spills UPS Packages, Blocks Amtrak Trains - Smart Money

    A freight train bound for Chicago derailed Friday, splitting open several train cars loaded with UPS packages just days before Christmas.

    Hundreds of workers from United Parcel Service Inc. (UPS) were sent to the site to load packages onto trailers and get them back on their way, company spokesman James Vickery said.

    I'm not too fond of the phrase "if their parcel was thrown from the train" used in this article. Either packagesmasher will have a field day with this or they will make a movie- Throw the mother from the train:happy2:
