Because of the sheer size and power of a train engine, its cars, and all its working parts, accidents involving trains are some of the most catastrophic accidents that occur. In fact, according to the Federal Railroad Administration, in the last ten years there have been almost 200 train accidents in Florida involving death or injury. Even more staggering, there have already been 20 such accidents this year.
There are many reasons why these accidents occur. Causes can be as simple as conductor fatigue or misconduct, or as complicated as computer malfunctions.
