Train Crash

Situation puzzles (sometimes called lateral thinking puzzles) are ones where you need to ask lots of yes or no questions to figure out what happened in the situation. These are good puzzles for groups where one person knows the puzzle and answers the questions.

There was a train with exactly 87 people (including the conductor and driver). The train crashed and no one was killed, but on the police list, it said "2 dead".

How can this be?

The same people who write these teasers. Actually Mr and Mrs Dead were in the front carriage at the time of the crash and although not killed, were severly injured, dying some time later in hospital. Hmm. Does that make 4 dead?

Or the train crashed into a car, killing its two occupants. Or two pregnant women suffered miscarriages.

I personally think the driver and conductor were murdered. So... they weren't killed during the crash, but still caused the crash... Or maybe I am just rambling :frog:

My first thought was,"Oh, no. The train hit a car." Thank goodness that was not the case.
Sometimes people request to be buried other than where they died. Either a train or plane carries them in a casket to their final destination.
