Remembering the Amtrak derailment in Batavia
On August 3, 1994 Batavia witnessed one enormous accident.
Amtrak train 49 was traveling nearly 80 miles per hour when it derailed just outside of Batavia, injuring 108 passengers and 10 crew members. The train was traveling from New York, N.Y. to Chicago, Ill when the accident happened.
These videos taken of the crash take some time to watch, but the accident was very well documented. It is just amazing that there we no fatal injuries.
