On September 12, 2008, a Metrolink commuter train collided head-on with a Union Pacific freight locomotive in Chatsworth, CA, resulting in the deaths of 25 people and injuries to 135 more. This California train accident received significant national and international attention for the scope of the accident, the number of people whose lives were affected and what caused the accident to occur. After conducting an investigation, it was determined that the train’s driver was distracted from his responsibilities by sending and receiving text messages, which caused him to overlook a red light.

The number of train accidents here in California and elsewhere around the world seems to be happening with increasing frequency due to a number of factors. For example, on April 28, 2008, a train accident in China resulted in the deaths of 70 people and 400 more severely injured. On June 22 of this year, a commuter train in Washington D.C. crashed during rush hour, killing nine people and injuring 70 more. On June 30, a freight train derailed in Italy and crashed into a small town killing 12 people and injuring at least 50 more.
