A train crash can happen at any time and, because of the size of the train, can have devastating consequences. The people on the train at the time of the train wreck could face serious, life-threatening injuries. Those who live near rail lines face injury if there is a train derailment involving a freight train. People who regularly drive across train tracks face tragic consequences if their vehicle collides with a train. Finally, people who work in train yards or on trains may face work-related injuries.
Train Crash Statistics
The Federal Railroad Administration's Office of Safety Analysis reports that there were 12,771 railroad-related accidents, resulting in approximately 800 deaths and approximately 8,900 non-fatal injuries in 2008.
