Amtrak car collision Ashland VA

There was yet another train/car collision today (We hear that the lady driving the car was not seriously injured.)

Thanks to Virtual Railfan for placing a video camera at the junction of England St. and Center St. A picture is worth a thousand words and a video is worth a thousand pictures.

There have been enough incidents in recent months that I needed to create a spreadsheet for them all. I have recorded the information that I have regarding these incidents. Some of the information is taken from memory so I would appreciate any corrections or updates that people can provide.

Can you imagine the carnage that would ensue were there to be a third track, lots more trains and ever-increasing road traffic?

Below is a snapshot of the spreadsheet. I have also posted live YouTube links (chronological order).
