PHILADELPHIA, Pa., April 7, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Accidentlawsuitfunding.com, a leading national lawsuit funding firm, reported today that an Amtrak train crashed near Philadelphia on Sunday, resulting in two track workers being killed and more than 30 passengers injured.
The train, Amtrak's Train 89, also known as the Palmetto, was traveling southbound on Sunday morning heading for Savannah, Georgia when it "slammed into construction equipment on the tracks near Philadelphia," according to The NY Times.
Two Amtrak workers were killed. One was an operator of the backhoe and the other was a supervisor. More than 30 passengers were injured in the crash.
Investigators from the National Transportation Safety Board arrived on scene that afternoon to determine why there would be equipment (a backhoe) on an active track.
Officials said, "they did not know yet how fast the train was going."
