The rail company that runs the country’s busiest rail line says the Trump Train crash is the “most serious” train crash since World War II.
A company statement released Monday afternoon says the train that slammed into the Pentagon was heading to Washington when it hit the Pentagon and plunged into a river.
The statement says the incident occurred Sunday night, when the train was on its way to a service to Chicago from Washington.
The statement says it was an “extremely dangerous and tragic event.”
The statement also says the National Transportation Safety Board has opened an investigation into the accident.
It says the NTSB is seeking information about whether or not a rail line operator was at fault in the accident and how the train operator was able to stop the train before it collided with the Pentagon.
The NTSB will report back to the Congress on the findings.
The National Transportation Security Administration (NTSA), the agency responsible for investigating and investigating rail accidents, says it has received “multiple” reports of the crash.
