USA: The Amtrak train was running at more than twice the speed limit
The Amtrak passenger train derailed yesterday in the northern part of the city of Olympia, the capital of the state of Washington (northwestern USA), ran at 130 km / h with a limit of 50, according to a federal official.
Three people were killed in a train crash when almost all the wagons of a 77-passenger train derailed as it crossed an uneven passage and many ended up on the motorway below.
The accident occurred at rush hour and several of the injured are being treated in critical condition.
According to the BBC, the authorities claim that all the train carriages have been investigated but they cannot rule out the possibility of an increase in the number of dead.
