Argentina: The Sarmiento Train Crash, an Accident Waiting to Happen

Simon Kofoed says that the train crash that took place last week in Buenos Aires, Argentina, “is the worst train accident in Argentina since the 1979 head on collision of two trains near Benavidez station when over 140 people lost their lives.” He adds: “Anyone who travels on the Sarmiento, and many of the other train lines in Buenos Aires, will testify that this was one of many accidents just waiting to happen.”
