Amtrak train that crashed in SC made stops in Raleigh, Cary

Sumwalt said in a press conference that the rail switch at the location of the crash was "lined and locked" to direct the rails onto the side track where the CSX train was resting. "She said she was just waiting on somebody to get to her". "That's how it appears to me but I'll defer to the experts on that one", he said. Smith said he and his friend saw passengers limping along the tracks, while others tried to get everyone out of the cars. The National Transportation Safety Board said on Twitter that it was beginning an investigation into the crash.

He said they first boarded Amtrak Train 91 on Saturday night in Rocky Mount, NC to visit family in Florida in addition to going to Disney World.

Such technology acts similar to a braking system, to prevent crashes.

It was the third deadly crash involving Amtrak in less than two months.

For the 60 or so who are classified as injured, their injuries range from small scratches to broken bones, according to Lexington County public information officer Harrison Cahill.

The coroner's office says Michael Kempf, 54, of Savannah, GA and Michael Cella, 34, of Orange Park, FL, were the two killed in the story. But Amtrak also also said CSX maintains all the tracks and signals where the accident happened and controls access to the sidings and yards. That train had two locomotives and 34 empty auto racks used to transport cars, the NTSB said. The others appeared to have minor injuries that would not require further hospital treatment. This incident again brought to light the issue of positive train control (PTC), which Amtrak's president said was not in use at the time of the crash. Officials said it was traveling at 80 miles per hour in a 30 miles per hour zone. "When it was happening, it was quick". One auto in the middle of the Amtrak train was snapped in half, forming a V off to one side of the tracks.

Two people were killed and 116 hospitalized after a passenger train collided with a freight train in SC.

A total of 116 people were brought to local hospitals, McMaster said.

The passenger train was carrying 147 people from NY to Miami when it collided with the freight train in Cayce, just outside the state capital Columbia, about 2.35am local time.

Amtrak says its train's lead engine and some of the passenger cars derailed.

- October 21, 2012: About a dozen passengers and crew members on an train from Chicago to Pontiac, Michigan, were injured when two locomotives and one or more coaches derailed after the train lost with the track near Niles, Michigan.

The Red Cross tweeted that "disaster trained volunteers" were responding to the scene of the accident.

Anderson said the passenger train hit the tail end of the CSX train.

The train was operating between NY and Miami. He could not confirm if any of the injuries were life-threatening.
