A Sunday morning crash involving an Amtrak passenger train and a freight train in Cayce, South Carolina, killed at least two people and injured more than 100.
The train, Amtrak 91, was operating between NY and Miami.

An NTSB official declined to say if the accident was the fault of CSX, but noted that CSX is responsible for maintaining proper track position. "I mean we see stuff like this on the news all the time, but here we have it, it's touched my family closely and we just thank God she's OK", Neblett said.
Henry McMaster said at a news conference that a CSX freight train appeared to be on a loading track when the Amtrak train with 147 people aboard slammed into it at 2:35 a.m.in Cayce, South Carolina, just east of Columbia. Lexington County Coroner Margaret Fisher identified the men as 54-year-old Michael Kempf of Savannah, Georgia and 36-year-old Michael Cella of Orange Park, Florida.
The Amtrak train was traveling from New Nork to Miami. CSX is the owner of the track but Amtrak uses the line.
"It's a frightful thing to see, to understand the force this involved", McMaster said, referring to the crash site.
A computer system called Positive Train Control (PTC), which the sources said could have prevented the crash, was not in operation in the area. At least four cars of the freight train, which was northbound before it was parked, were crumpled, looking like crushed tin foil, but remained on the tracks. Many were treated for cuts and bruises and released, while two others were admitted, spokeswoman Jennifer Wilson said. He could not validate if any one of the personal injuries were actually life-threatening.
