http://www.foxnews.com/us/2018/02/04/am ... orted.htmlAt least two people are dead and 50 more injured after an Amtrak train collided with a CSX freight train early Sunday in South Carolina, reports CNN, derailing the Amtrak lead engine and some of its passenger cars. The accident, which involved Amtrak's New York-to-Miami Train 91, occurred about 2:30am in Cayce, SC, south of Columbia. Amtrak said it had 139 passengers and eight crew aboard.
No word on why but it looks like the Amtrak was being diverted to a side track when it happened.
You'd think they'd use some kind of technology to avoid these mishaps. Computers or something might be involved.
