Running Head: THE SUNSET LIMITED TERROR ATTACK1The Sunset Limited Terror AttackInstitution AffiliationDate
THE SUNSET LIMITED TERROR ATTACK2The Sunset Limited Terror attack is one which has not been resolved until today. It occurred on the night of October 9, 1995, at half past midnight. The miraculous happening on this night is that there was only one person who got killed. However, there were about eighty (80) who got injured (Garner and Huff, 1997). The train got derailed near a place known as Palo Verde. There were also some cars that were derailed and they fell nine meters off a bridge, all theway to a river bed that was very dry.After investigations were carried out, it was found out that some of the rails had been removed from their position, and this is what led to the derailment. This was after they got connected using some wires (Boyd et al., 1997). The way in which the connection had been doneindicated that those who sabotaged the train had adequate knowledge regarding railroads. However, the culprits behind the sabotage have still not been identified until today (Wang, 2015).
