According to authorities on Sunday, an Amtrak passenger train traveling on the wrong track collided with a CSX Corp freight train in South Carolina, killing two crew members and injuring at least 116 in the railroad's third fatal crash in as many months. Amtrak Train 91 collided with the freight train at around 2:35 am local time near the state capital and derailed, the railroad said in a statement. South Carolina Governor Henry McMaster said it appeared that the Amtrak train was on the wrong track when it slammed into the parked CSX freight train, which had no one aboard. McMaster told a news conference, “It’s a horrible thing to see, to understand what force was involved."
