Waterfall survivors tell of train speeding before accident

KATU-TV 8 Portland resident Dan Pabst, who lost his wife earlier this week, described the incident.

“It was about three days after we were married,” he told The Oregonian/OregonLive. “I’d been out with her (on Friday night) and just wanted to take a shower and I said, ‘I’m going to grab something to eat with the kids but my car is running out of gas,’”

Pabst said he was getting ready to go to his place in Oregon to check into a hotel when he saw the train at the top of the tracks.

“It was like a train just straight up and started to go over that hill,” he said. “The train ran down and into a wood.”

Pabst, who is homeless, walked down the tracks and heard an explosion. He grabbed a large box and ran back onto the tracks.

“You hear this sort of popping noise but when you get close… and you don’t know where it’s going to happen, you have to go out into that wood,” he said.

As Pabst came back to the edge of the woods, a man ran out of the wood and threw his box into the river.

“I just started banging on this guy, he turned around and saw him laying down,” Pabst said. “I heard this screeching, this awful screeching. The next thing I knew, this guy was right in front of him, and we could see a car coming at us.”

Pabst said one of the tracks stopped and a train was coming from that direction.

After a few moments, Pabst heard people yelling for help. He was able to throw his box up high enough to make it to safety before the train reached the spot where he was sitting.

“He was dead from the crash,” Pabst said. “He had no life left in him.”
