South Carolina Amtrak crash: 2 killed, 70 injured after trains collide

Kempf and conductor Michael Cella, 36, died after Amtrak Train 91 headed for Miami collided with a stationary CSX freight train at about 2:35 a.m. south of Cayce, S.C., according to Lexington County coroner Margaret Fisher.

A derailed Amtrak train sits on the track in Cayce, South Carolina, after the crash.

The Amtrak passenger train was traveling between NY and Miami when it hit the stationary CSX train. He said the question for investigators is why that happened.

"At this time, to my knowledge, this train did not have the PTC, " or positive train control, Allen said. "That has been confirmed", Harrison Cahill said.

CSX issued a statement expressing condolences but said nothing about the cause of the accident.

The local Red Cross tweeted that "disaster trained volunteers" are responding to the incident.

"That's what it's created to do", he said, referring to technology that regulators have been pressing for for decades with mixed success. Just a few days back i.e. on 31st January 2018 at 11:20 am ET, an Amtrak carrying the Republican Members of Congress alongwith their staff for a Political Retreat, collides with a Tractor/ Trailer in Virginia.

TV footage from the scene showed the aftermath of the crash, with the Amtrak engine on its side and its front crumpled.

"It's a awful thing to see, to understand the force involved", McMaster said after touring the scene. The National Transportation Safety Board sent investigators.

"The CSX was on the track it was supposed to be on", McMaster said.

- March 9, 2015: At least 55 people were injured when an train bound from North Carolina to New Jersey derailed after colliding with an oversized tractor-trailer that was stuck on the tracks in Halifax, North Carolina. CSX maintains all of the tracks and signal systems. Buses also are being provided to allow uninjured passengers to continue to their destination.

Myrick told USA TODAY that the crash happened in a mostly industrial area near the intersection of Interstate-26 and I-77. Indications are, McMaster said, that the Amtrak train was on the wrong track, and estimated to be moving at 59 miles per hour. We know this is like nothing else they have ever been through.
