And if you look at this photo, you can see the wheelstops still attached to the rail under the Soo box in the middle of the street.
A buddy was involved in something similar a few years ago, although the rail joints held when the wheel stops caught the car. He said the most interesting thing wasn't the bang when the car hit the wheel stops, but the sound of the slack running out of several hundred feet of jointed rail :-) Obviously in the situation in the photo, the bolts sheared and the car took the last section of rail with it into the street.
