  • 2005 – A northbound Canadian National Railway train on the former Illinois Central Yazoo Subdivision runs past a red signal and collides with a southbound train. About 15,000 gallons of fuel spill from the locomotives, providing fuel for a fire that burned more than 15 hours; all head-end crewmembers on both trains die in the accident.[1]
