Train accidents do not happen as commonly as many other accidents in Mississippi but, when they do occur, they are known for being some of the most traumatic accidents. This is due to the fact that trains are some of the largest modes of transportation within the state and are capable of causing some of the most devastating harm. In just one year’s time in Mississippi, approximately 685 people were killed in horrific accidents.
