An Amtrak train slammed into a car in Medford Thursday morning and the driver survived.
The train operating between Boston and Portland, Maine has achieved its highest ridership in its 10 year history.
Investigators in Maine are examining cell phone and logbook records and electronic equipment as they try to determine why a tractor-trailer failed to stop in time to avoid a collision with Amtrak’s Downeaster in North Berwick.
An Amtrak Downeaster train carrying 112 people barreled into a dump truck in North Berwick, Maine just after 11 a.m. Monday, killing the driver of that truck.
The start of work on a $35 million extension of Amtrak’s Downeaster passenger train from Portland to Brunswick was marked by the delivery of steel rails Monday.
