In Phoenix, train accidents occur very infrequently. However, when one does occur it can result in catastrophic injuries and even death. In the past 5 years according to the Federal Railway Administration Office of Safety Analysis, there have been close to a total of 90 deaths and under 200 injuries related to train accidents and incidents in Arizona.
Train accidents occur mainly due to human error and negligence. In many instances train conductors and engineers may be overworked, fatigued, under the influence, inattentive, lack proper training and education or excessively speeding. A train wreck can also happen because of a motor vehicle stopped on the train tracks, equipment failure, signal malfunctions, negligent maintenance of tracks, defective construction/design or poor visibility; including the failure to follow or place basic traffic laws, signs and signals.
A train is no match for a motor vehicle or person as its size and force alone would be destructive in nature.
