The sky appears black in the dashboard camera footage shot by WGNtv reporter Jabari Thomas, but it's actually 10:30am in the morning. Thomas had just passed under the Huey P. Long bridge and was turning into a fast food restaurant to seek shelter from the storm. He parked his truck just in time to catch 11 train cars derail and tumble to the road below.
