“On behalf of the City of Chester, I would like to offer my deepest sympathy to the family and friends of the two persons who lost their lives in the Amtrak Palmetto train 89 accident. We pray for those who were injured as a result of the crash and hope that they are able to fully recover.
As Amtrak and the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) conduct their investigations, I, along with Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf and U.S. Representative Bob Brady would like to offer our support and resources to assist with the process.”
– Mayor Thaddeus Kirkland
