90 Mile View: Eric Peterson
On Sunday evening, July 21, the eastbound Amtrak train, The River Runner, struck an SUV in Warrensburg, MO. Injured in the crash were a 42-year old woman and her 3-year old granddaughter both of whom remain in Kansas City area hospitals.
Eric Peterson is an engineer for Amtrak and previously on 90-Mile View has shared his love of trains and tales from the tracks with us. Today he talks with Steve Kraske about the steps Amtrak employees take when accidents like this occur.
