Jesse James: You Say Tomato, I Say Train Wreck

8/13/2009 1:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Jesse James could've been a dead man yesterday afternoon when the train he was riding in collided with a semi-truck hauling a load of tomatoes.

Jesse James

Jesse and his 11-year-old son were among 279 passengers on the choo-choo as it rolled through Monterey County, California -- when it suddenly plowed through the semi which was inconveniently stopped on the tracks.

Amtrak and the California Highway Patrol confirmed no one was hurt in the ketchup-creating crash ... which would have made for some really, really awesome video.

James posted photos of the wreckage on his Twitter page, saying "This trip is turning out to be a real train wreck ... train was going 70 mph, good thing the truck wasn't Peterbuilt. Would have been Tragic."

This happened on Tuesday. Not yesterday. The train was in no danger, because it was the trailer that was across the tracks and not the cab. TMZ get your facts straight.

Could have been a real life Premonition for Sandra Bullock, Jesse should be thanking GOD everything turned out ok for him and his son and the other passagers. I glad everybody was ok and it wasn't a tragic accident I love Sandra Bullock such a humble spirit she is.

As my friend who is an engineer on the rails says "I win all ties". That truck had no business blocking the tracks. Can't stop a train like you stop a car. Good thing everyone was OK.

The singular of tomato and potato is just that, tomato and potato - in Canada, in America and in every English speaking country in the world. The plural of the above referenced produce is "tomatoes" and "potatoes" - where Dan Quayle got in trouble was correcting a child by telling that child that the singular was "tomatoe", which it is not. If you're going to put down someone's spelling, please make sure you are correct - not that it matters.

Kate - the article clearly indicates that the photos are that of Jesse James and includes a link to his Twitter page. Not sure if they need permission if it's posted in a public forum such as Twitter. Anyone know of Twitter Copyright rules? I don't Tweet.

Ace McGee - Plural of tomato is tomatoes and TMZ did not spell Peterbilt wrong, that was an actual quote by Jesse James himself from his Twitter page. Let's see you get onto HIM for his spelling!! LOL

EB - the "dead man" reference in the article is in relation to Jesse's show, I'm sure.

Thanks for Listening!!

Hey "jesse fan".seriously, you don't need to explaining anything to me. I'm over the age of 5. As most supporters of Jesse. REMOVING and REPOSTING images is uncool and the photographer always desevers credit. credit for images, taken and reposted without premission. If you don't understand it. FINE..
