South Carolina train collision kills two, injures 70

Amtrak engineer killed in train crash was 'a loving father'

A CRASH between a busy Amtrak passenger train and a freight train in SC has left at least two people dead and around 70 injured.

All passengers were evacuated early Sunday morning, transporting at least 70 people to local hospitals. The Amtrak, bound for Miami from NY as part of the passenger rail company's Silver Star service, was reportedly carrying eight crew and 140 passengers when it "came into contact" with the freight auto.

The two people who died were aboard the Amtrak train, Lexington County Coroner Margaret Fisher confirmed.

Officials also say roughly 5,000 gallons of fuel had spilled as a result of the crash, it is now being cleaned up.

The derailment happened near Charleston Highway and Pine Ridge Road.

"The first engine of the freight train, of course, was torn up and the single engine of the passenger train, the Amtrak train, which was headed south was barely recognisable". The passenger line says the lead engine derailed, as well as some passenger cars.

There were eight crew members and approximately 139 passengers on board. The injuries ranged from scratches to broken bones, according to officials. The National Transportation Safety Board has opened an investigation.

The Amtrak train appeared to be on the wrong track, according to McMaster, when it collided with a freight train that was stationary and on a loading track.

It is the fifth crash involving an Amtrak train in a matter of weeks.
