Rep. Joe Wilson releases a statement regarding the train collision in Pine Ride, S.C. Sunday

Cayce, SC - Yesterday, Representative Joe Wilson made the following statement regarding the fatal train crash that occurred near Pine Ridge, In that statement, Wilson said, “Roxanne and I are sending our thoughts and prayers to all those injured and to the loved ones of the two people who lost their lives in this tragic accident. I am grateful for the courageous actions of the first responders and the selfless Red Cross volunteers at the Pine Ridge Middle School Red Cross Shelter.”

Representative Wilson went to the Red Cross shelter today to talk with survivors and first responders. He also spoke with Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao to discuss the collision.

“I have faith in the leadership of Secretary Chao, a longtime friend, and stand with her in calling for the Senate to immediately remove the hold on Ronald Batory’s nomination to lead the Federal Railroad Administration. It is crucial to ensure the Department of Transportation is fully staffed and have their chief railway safety official in place.”

Rep. Joe Wilson also spoke with Amtrak CEO Richard Anderson to express his sympathy for their loss of personnel and commend him on Amtrak’s continuing efforts to quickly provide bus transportation for all passengers affected.

Amtrak has set up a passenger information line at 800-523-9101.
