One local example is the Chatsworth Metro link collision in 2008, which was the worst train accident recorded in the United States since 1993.The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) investigated the accident and assigned fault to the train’s engineer, who also died in the collision because he was distracted through cell phone use.
