Amtrak - Map
An Amtrak passenger train struck a logging truck at the railroad crossing just off U.S. 1 on Robert Reynolds Road, seen in the center of this aerial image. The crossing is just a few miles north of Cassatts main intersection. Authorities said the train struck the truck around 6 a.m. Monday, sending the driver to the hospital with minor injuries. No one else suffered injuries. Amtrak hired charter buses to take passengers to another train, presumably in Florence, to continue their ride. - photo by (c) 2015 Google Maps
A northbound Amtrak passenger train struck a logging truck around 6 a.m. Monday just off U.S. 1 in Cassatt. According to Kershaw County Sheriff Jim Matthews, the truck had just turned off of U.S. 1 on to Robert Reynolds Road. Railroad tracks hug U.S. 1 with the ungated and unlighted crossing just feet off the highway.
