Fatal Train Accident Statistics

The National Transportation Safety Board statistics indicate that pedestrians are more likely to die in train accidents than in automobile accidents. Several train accidents can be attributed to defective crossings, outdated or missing safety equipment, and insufficient warning systems.

Trains collide with cars or people every two hours. Over a thousand people die in train accidents every year. A total of 2,300 people were injured, and 600 people were killed.

Trains are one of the most efficient modes of transportation. A conductor’s ability to repair and frequency of repairs contribute to passenger and employee safety. Recklessness and inadequate shortcuts endanger passengers.

U.S. train accidents have resulted in the deaths of nearly 7,200 people since 1997. On American railroads, collisions with pedestrians account for more than half of all train-related deaths.

Derailments, worn-out tracks, disregard for safety requirements, inadequate security, and other forms of negligence are the most common causes of railway accidents.
