In the days before mandatory backseat seatbelts, I saw the Mississauga Trail Derailment.

We were driving home from a visit with family friends. It was very late and for whatever reason, I was looking East out the back window of my parents car. As we went over a bridge in Toronto’s West End, the sky lit up. It was as though the sun rose and set in within 5 seconds. I didn’t think anything much of it, other than, wow, neat.

My father, who was driving and I guess checking his rear view mirror and saw part of what I saw, went crazy.
