Message from Amtrak CEO Stephen Gardner on the Southwest Chief Train 4 Derailment 

We are deeply saddened by yesterday’s tragic event and mourn those who lost their lives. For those who helped others, we want to express our heartfelt appreciation. This includes our hard-working front line team members, numerous local authorities and emergency personnel who quickly mobilized to help all at the scene, and our customers, including a group of Boy Scouts onboard who jumped in to help others.
