A train carrying crude oil derailed in Lynchburg, Va., on Wednesday afternoon, causing a huge fireball that local residents were quick to capture and share on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook and YouTube while authorities evacuated the area.
“Wow guys. The train derailed right outside my building. Pray that no one is hurt,” Instagram user sherifelipe said in a video of the scene posted shortly after 2 p.m. ET
Twitter users, capturing the scene from afar, documented the fire and giant plume of acrid, blake smoke that followed.
