TBT - Train Crash in Silver Spring February 16, 1996

This week we have been remembering the 20 year anniversary of the tragic fiery collision between an Amtrak passenger train and a MARC commuter train in Silver Spring. 11 people died and dozens more were injured.

The first video below is from the archives of our old DFRS Today show and contains several minutes of on scene video.


In the video below, NBC4 interviewed two of our retiree's who were there that fateful night and recall what they experienced.

WTOP also interviewed the same retired firefighters. You can read that here: Retired Md. firefighters remember fatal Amtrak crash in Silver Spring, 20 years ago
