Understanding Train Accidents

According to preliminary data released in August of 2018 from the Federal Railroad Administration, a total of 4,476 accidents on the nation’s railways were reported with a total of 767 railroads reporting. There were 341 fatalities reported while 3,172 non-fatal accidents were reported.

According to NBC News, an article published in January of 2018 reported the specific damages from the deadly Washington State Amtrak train accident, which took place in December of 2017: “The damage from a deadly Amtrak train crash in Washington state in December topped $40.4 million, the U.S. National Transportation Safety Board said in a preliminary report…” NBC News also added: “The safety board also said the Dec. 18 crash that killed three and injured 70 could have been prevented if a safety technology system known as positive train control had been operational.”

NBC News further added: “In 2008, Congress mandated the implementation of PTC nationwide by the end of 2015, then extended that deadline until the end of 2018 when its installation became more complex than anticipated. The government can extend the deadline to 2020 to complete some aspects of the system.”

Some of the most common train accidents include but aren’t limited to: train derailments, sudden and unexpected train stops, railroad crossing incidents, train car decoupling, collisions with other trains, and more.
