According to the Federal Railroad Administration, more 3,000 fatal train accidents occur each year in the United States, leaving victims seriously injured or even dead. National statistics show that there is a train accident every two hours.
Train collisions are amongst the most dangerous types of transportation accidents. These types of accidents can involve freight or passenger train, locomotives, subways or other local commuter trains.
