Hospitals around the Philadelphia admitted and treated passengers and Amtrak employees for everything from minor injuries to serious injuries requiring surgery.
Amtrak train crash – The Blame Game
The blame game has already started. Amtrak has laid the problem, to some degree, with the government because of budget cuts that had prevented the safety measures that were required to be installed. Amtrak announced that it will install cameras inside train cabs to record what is occurring with the operators of the trains.
