Metrolink’s Safety Record

Hosted by

Early this morning, a Metrolink commuter train derailed after crashing into a truck on the tracks in Oxnard, injuring 28 people. Seven years ago, a deadly crash in Chatsworth prompted Metrolink to implement new safety measures. Congress also demanded more sophisticated safety systems be implemented across the country by the end of 2015.
