>> Officials say an Amtrak passenger train was traveling on the wrong track, when it collided with a freight train southwest of Columbia, South Carolina, early Sunday morning. The engineer and conductor on the Amtrak train were killed, and at least 116 passengers were injured. According to officials, they say no one was on the freight train at the time of the crash.
South Carolina's Governor says the CSX freight train was parked on a side track. It's not clear how the Amtrak train got onto it. It's the latest in a series of accidents involving Amtrak. In December, three people were killed when an Amtrak train derailed in Washington State. The engineer said he misread a signal.
In late January, a train carrying Republican members of Congress collided with a garbage truck at a crossing in Virginia, killing one person in the truck. The cause of that crash is still under investigation.
