Recent Philadelphia Train Accident

On May 12th, 2015 Amtrak Northeast Regional Train 188, operating from Washington to New York, derailed in Philadelphia. This tragic train accident resulted in the death of 8 people with some reports stating that there were more than 200 injured and over 140 were hospitalized.  The NTSB is actively investigating.  But the latest reports seem to indicate that the train was proceeding at twice the speed limit set for that stretch of rail.
