Watch That Chicago Train Crash at O’Hare Airport Over and Over [GIF]


In case you missed the insane train crash in Chicago the other day, check out this remarkable GIF–which you can enjoy because there weren’t any fatalities, okay?

On Monday, the president of a Chicago transit union said that there are indications that the train operator dozed off before the train jumped the tracks and injured 32 people.The derailment happened just before 3 a.m. at the end of the Chicago Transit Authority’s Blue Line at O’Hare International Airport. The train appeared to have been going too fast as it approached the station and didn’t stop at a bumping post  aka a metal shock absorber at the end of the tracks. Transit officials say there are more than 80,000 daily riders along the Blue Line O’Hare branch. A lot more people could have been injured.

This GIF is so intense that it almost seems fake and out of a movie. We’re guessing that the train conductor isn’t going to be getting much more sleep these days…
