To quicken, in the sense here considered, is to increase speed, move or cause to move more rapidly, as through more space or with, a greater number of motions in the same time. To accelerate is to increase the speed of action or of motion. A motion whose speed increases upon itself is said to be accelerated, as the motion of a falling body, which becomes swifter with every second of time. To accelerate any work is to hasten it toward a finish, commonly by quickening all its operations in orderly unity toward the result. To despatch is to do and be done with, to get a thing off one's hands. To despatch an enemy is to kill him outright and quickly; to despatch a messenger is to send him in haste; to despatch a business is to bring it quickly to an end. Despatch is commonly used of single items. To promote a cause is in any way to bring it forward, advance it in power, prominence, etc. To speed is really to secure swiftness; to hasten is to attempt it, whether successfully or unsuccessfully. Hurry always indicates something of confusion. The hurried man forgets dignity, appearance, comfort, courtesy, everything but speed; he may forget something vital to the matter in hand; yet, because reckless haste may attain the great object of speed, hurry has come to be the colloquial and popular word for acting quickly. To facilitate is to quicken by making easy; to expedite is to quicken by removing hindrances. A good general will improve roads to facilitate the movements of troops, hasten supplies and perfect discipline to promote the general efficiency of the force, despatch details of business, expedite all preparations, in order to accelerate the advance and victory of his army.

On Earth, for example, say you have a cloud being blown by some wind, if you're looking down at Earth from space, you could measure the speed of a continent as it rotates in and out of view and a different speed for the cloud as it rotates in and out of view. And that difference in speed occurs because wind has pushed that cloud relative to the surface.
The fans in front help to produce an air cushion, because the wing is tilted like a wedge and so the air is trapped below the wing surface and like a hovercraft it can elevate up at the beginning, so it can really lift off at nearly zero speed. And later you can tilt these thrusters in the front to get into a more streamlined, so which is then in the performance, better. So you use tillable rotors in the front to lift off at lower speed and fly at higher speed.
So: You have a high-speed train, operating on a track which is not purposed for high-speed trains, with no high-speed train signaling/warning system in place, and then you add a sharp curve into the equation. Thus the crash.
I am not a speed reader. I am a speed understander.
Damn the torpedoes, Drayton, go ahead! Jouett, full speed! (frequently erroreously quoted as 'Damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead')
