South Carolina Amtrak Accident Lawyer | Accident Attorney
What Caused The South Carolina Amtrak Accident?
The collision today in South Carolina between Amtrak Train 91 and a CSX Freight Train marks
the third deadly Amtrak crash in less than two months. Early reports from today’s crash have
two Amtrak employees killed and more than 70 others injured. The crash also appears to have
caused a major oil spill at the scene.
On December 18, 2017, Amtrak Train 501 derailed south of Seattle, Washington and into traffic on Interstate 5, killing three people and injuring 70 others. Last week an Amtrak Train carrying dozens of Republican members of Congress collided with a garbage truck at a crossing in Virginia, killing an occupant of the truck and injuring passengers on the train.
