Older Structure Causes Tragic Accident- Train Wreck

First responders are treating the derailment as a mass casualty incident. Authorities have not yet provided details on injuries. “Emergency crews are on the scene and the Amtrak Management is responding,” an Amtrak spokesperson said in a statement. “Some injuries are reported. Service between Seattle and Portland is suspended for the time being.” Amtrack train which departed shortly before 8 a.m. local time from Tacoma, was part of a new service that launched Monday morning. The train is able to carry up to 250 people, but Amtrak said there were approximately 78 passengers and five crew members on board at the time.

Amtrack Train Crash Injury and Fatality Lawyers

When Amtrak engineers do not obey speed limits and follow safety procedures, and when proper safety mechanisms are not put in place train wrecks can happen. Speeding related Amtrak accidents are preventable. There are in-place positive control mechanisms that can automatically prevent a train from moving above a set speed. However, not all Amtrak trains are equipped with this technology as of yet. When highly preventable misfortunes like this occur, it is best for injured parties to know their rights. Speaking with a a train wreck injury lawyer as soon as possible is certainly a wise decision. We do not have the full understanding of what happened but, there were fatalities.

Multiple Casualties Reported- Train Wreck Catastrophe

Multiple fatalities and injuries are reported after an Amtrak train derailed near Tacoma, Washington, early Monday morning. A train car was left dangling over an overpass on I-5 – which has been shut down – in DuPont. The train reportedly struck something on the tracks. Jonathan Hunt reported on “Happening Now” that the Cascades train line was on its inaugural route out of a new station in Tacoma.  Infrastructure plans must be approved immediately. This was a dangerous route. The mayor of Lakewood, Washington, a city along the route, predicted a deadly crash.

Who Is Amtrack?

Amtrak serves more than 500 destinations in 46 states, the District of Columbia, and three Canadian provinces on more than 21,300 miles of routes. On an average day, more than 84,600 passengers ride some 300 Amtrak trains—that’s like the city of Bloomington, Minnesota, boarding a train every day. Perhaps even more noteworthy? When included among U.S. airlines, Amtrak ranks sixth in domestic passengers carried: In 2015, Amtrak transported more than three times as many riders between Washington, D.C., and NYC as the airline industry, and carried more riders between New York City and Boston than all of the airlines combined.
