If your rental truck blew through a stop sign and slammed into a van -- sandwiching the van between you and a train hauling scrap metal -- what would you do?
...
Early morning (5:45 am) in Miami, passenger van was stopped at crossing gates waiting for tracks to clear, rental truck slammed into the back of it, compacting it between the truck and the train, train dragged it quite a ways, occupants hospitalized. Truck driver abandoned the truck and left the scene.
