On June 27, an Amtrak train headed for Chicago from Los Angeles hit a dump truck at a Mendon, Missouri, crossing and derailed.  At least three people – two train passengers and the dump truck driver - were killed.  At least 50 people were injured as a result of the derailment, which occurred in rural Missouri, about two hours north of Kansas City, Missouri.

There were 243 passengers and 12 crew workers onboard.

The National Transportation Safety Board is sending a team to investigate the deadly train crash. Reportedly eight train cars derailed as a result of the collision.

In August the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration issued a report on fatal traffic wrecks for 2017.  This is the most recent year for which the NHTSA has final data.  That year, U.S. traffic deaths fell some 2% compared to 2016.
