2 dead, more than 100 hurt in SC Amtrak crash

2 dead, more than 100 hurt in SC Amtrak crash

The Amtrak train's lead engine and some of the passenger cars derailed, Amtrak said.

South Carolina Governor Henry McMaster says the two deaths are employees of Amtrak.

"Remarkably, they are in good spirits, given what they went through this morning", said Cuthbert Langley, communications director for the South Carolina Region of the Red Cross.

Other Amtrak services along the Atlantic Coast, including the Auto Train (Trains 52 & 53), Palmetto (Trains 89 & 90) and Silver Meteor (Trains 97 & 98) are operating normally. No less than one individual is in basic condition, while two others are not kidding - it's really bad.

Lexington Medical Center spokesperson Jennifer Wilson confirmed that they treated 27 patients with minor injuries, and all but two have been released.

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

"Oh, we felt the impact", said Cheeseman. Amtrak engineer Michael Kempf, 54, of Savannah, GA, and Amtrak conductor, Michael Cella, 36, of Orange Park, FL, were both killed in the early morning collision.

Two crew members were killed and more than 100 other people injured in the third deadly wreck involving Amtrak in less than two months.

The Lexington County sheriff later said four buses had been made available to take Amtrak passengers to their final destinations. He says the injuries ranged from scratches to broken bones.

Amtrak Train 91 was reportedly traveling from NY to Miami with 139 passengers onboard when it collided with a CSX freight train around 2:35 a.m.

About 5,000 gallons of diesel fuel spilled at the scene, Becker said.

The force of the crash dislodged a seat and knocked it onto passenger Tronia Dorsey's legs, said her son, Andre Neblett, who spoke with her.

They are also perhaps an indication that the coalition may be willing to adjust its cuts to respond to tightness in some markets. The indicator was significantly higher than analysts' forecasts, which expected the stock to grow by only 126,000 barrels.

The National Transportation Safety Board sent investigators.

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

Amtrak said it was "deeply saddened" by the deaths.

Fisher says the men killed were in the train's engine. A phone line has been set up for people who have inquiries about passengers, at 800-523-9101. That incident underscored systemic safety failures by Amtrak, resulted in Congress substantially increasing the maximum amount paid to victims in a single Amtrak accident, and resulted in a record $265 million settlement.

There were at total of nine crew members and approximately 139 passengers on board.
