Amtrak® Train Crash Leaves Opening for CompensationDetails of the Amtrak® train derailment in Mendon, Missouri

At least three people were killed and dozens were injured after an Amtrak® train derailed in Missouri.

The train was traveling to Chicago and had about 243 passengers on board when it collided with a dump truck near the city of Mendon, located about 100 miles northeast of Kansas City.

Authorities say preliminary reports indicate the collision happened at an uncontrolled railroad crossing that didn't have warning lights or motion gates.

Secretary Pete Buttigieg tweeted, "Saddened by the tragic loss of life and injuries in the Missouri train derailment today & Northern California collision over the weekend."

NTSB Chair Jennifer Homendy could not comment on the specifics of the investigation but did say that they are requesting speed data on the route as well as data recorder information and camera footage from Amtrak®.
