Tragically, there have been a number of recent accidents involving trains.  There was a crash between a train and an 18-wheeler in Donaldsonville, Louisiana on September 15, 2022.  There was a deadly crash between an Amtrak train and U-Haul in McCook, Nebraska on September 20, 2022.  There was a deadly crash between a train and passenger vehicle in Chapel Hill, Tennessee on September 24, 2022.  There was a crash between a train and an 18-wheeler in Mumford, Texas on October 10, 2022.

Safe train operators must take adequate precautions to ensure that their conductors do not severely injure or kill members of the public in a train accident.  Industry standards require train companies to provide adequate training to their conductors and engineers.  Safe companies must also supervise their conductor to ensure that the company’s policies and procedures have been followed, as well as all applicable federal guidelines.  Failing to properly train or audit a conductor the company allows to operate a train can have tragic consequences.
