TAMPA, FL – Two sustained minor injuries after an Amtrak train collided with their SUV at the East Broadway Avenue and East Tampa Boulevard intersection in the Orient district around 1 p.m. Friday.
WTSP said the SUV occupants, women in their 40s, wore seatbelts when they were struck by the train going 70 mph. Wearing their seatbelts, may in fact, could have been the reason why they only sustained minor injuries. This detail, though, has not been confirmed.
The 169 passengers aboard the train were unharmed.
Officials have not indicated the exact circumstances of this collision.
