Sorry about that time we almost turned you into a charred pile of human flesh and despair! If you'll just give us your personal info that we can use for marketing purposes, I'd be happy to give you utterly valueless and potentially deadly future rides!
In all seriousness, this explosion was pretty damn terrifying, and it probably would have remained in the news cycle much longer had not Amtrak 188 fatally derailed in Philadelphia just a few days later.
