The Federal Railroad Administration reports that only 14 train accidents occurred in 2014 in all of Pennsylvania. However, with over 350 million passengers taking AMTRAK, New Jersey Transit, and SEPTA each year, train accidents do occur and there is a high potential for serious personal injuries and even death.
