Anybody ever heard of a driverless train being used, loaded with hazardous materials? Several obvious problems with that scheme.

Rail company spokesman Christophe Journet said the train had been immobilised in a neighbouring village before a scheduled crew change, but for an unknown reason had then started rolling downhill into Lac-Megantic.

Eye witnesses said that by the time the driverless train reached the town it was travelling at considerable speed.

Local media reported 60 people missing, although police officials have not confirmed this.
