Trains are known to be one of the oldest forms of transportation in the United States, however they are still frequently used in South Carolina. Being a part of our roads and highways, trains are a very dangerous threat to drivers.
Statistics from January 2011 to December 2011 show that there were over 10,000 accidents involving the railroads. Some causes of train-related accidents result from errors by the train driver, outdated railroad tracks and machinery and failure to comply with protocol for railroad crossing.
