Fatal Train Accident Statistics

Getting around California is more accessible through public transport. It’s a cheap and convenient way to explore the city and get to your destination. Unfortunately, accidents involving public transportation vehicles are on the rise. Taking a school bus, tour bus, public bus, trolley, metro, or train should not mean risking your life.

Sadly, passengers often entrust their lives to drivers who are poorly trained, incompetent, or negligent. One driver error can result in dozens of lives ruined or taken in a matter of seconds. According to the US Department of Transportation, approximately 5,800 train-car collisions occur in the United States each year, with the majority of them occurring at railroad crossings. There are 600 deaths and 2,300 injuries as a result of these accidents.

According to the Federal Railroad Administration, train accidents in California resulted in the injuries of 82 people and the deaths of 29 people in one year. Some common reasons why train accidents occur are derailments, poorly maintained tracks, noncompliance with safety standards, inadequate security, and other negligence issues.
