I'm not exactly sure what you're trying to say, but from this and other articles I've read about this is that it was a freak accident. Should we treat all trains as if they're going to derail at any moment?

From the way I read it they were on the bridge and they caused the derailment. The train had to brake because they were on the tracks.

I'm not saying that's impossible, but that's not how I've read it. Here are a couple more articles so that you can compare.
