SUV Crash with Metra Train Near Arlington Heights Rd and Northwest Highway Arlington Heights

In the case of the accident, the interlocking plant was properly set for through track movement only, so as to allow the Amtrak train to pass the freight locomotives which should have been stopped on the side tracks on the through tracks onto and over the bridge.

The 's medical commander at the scene 20 years earlier told the newspaper that the Amtrak crash is still being used as a case study in effective disaster response.

Previously, freight locomotives were only required to have automatic cab signals without an automatic train stop feature.

Customers should expect extensive delay.

But Landsberg noted that trains traveling at the posted speed limit need a mile to stop.

The Network Rail log initially reported that the GWR driver had reported hitting an obstruction and derailing.

The speed limit in that area is 70 mph, but Landsberg said investigators do not believe the train was traveling faster than that when it hit the truck at Prospect Avenue at 8:18 a.

Description: Although common on passenger trains up until that time, cab signals combined with train stop and speed control had never been installed on freight locomotives due to potential train handling issues at high speed.

The investigation of the crash is being conducted by Metra Police β€” also assigned to the crash scene.

    A train wreck, train collision, train accident or train crash is a type of disaster involving one or more trains. Train wrecks often occur as a result of miscommunication, as when a moving train meets another train on the same track; or an accident, such as when a train wheel jumps off a track in a derailment; or when a boiler explosion occurs.
