Collisions and derailments happen for many reasons. Engineer negligence, poor rail maintenance, and operator error have all been blamed for train wrecks.

  • Alcohol or illegal drug use
  • Defective Fuel tank
  • Hazardous chemicals or waste materials
  • Defective railroad crossings
  • Poor operating practices
  • Inadequate signal interchanges
  • Inconsistent train track or rail inspection
  • Defective crossing signals
  • Failure to use a horn
  • Operator fatigue
  • Excessive speed
  • Sun kinks
