Here is another Amtrak train crash in South Carolina, following an earlier train travelling on the wrong track, which hit into a freight train, killing two people few weeks ago. Amtrak passenger train was passed onto a rail siding below speed limit, but crashed into a CSX train loaded with automobiles, resulting into about 116 people injured and spill of thousand gallons of fuel.

A large number of passengers were rushed to nearby middle school, at the American Red Cross for emergency shelter at about 2:35 a.m. Sunday morning and about 115 other Amtrak passengers was transferred to local hospitals. President Donald Trump has also expressed his condolences to crash victims and everyone who have helped out on his post on twitter. However, report shows that Amtrak and CSX are currently shifting blames on each other.
