WSDOT Charger locomotive 1402 was severely damaged after derailing near DuPont, a town close to Tacoma in the State of Washington. Overspeeding is stated to be the reason for the derailment, with the train travelling at 80 mph on a 30-mph section. The brand new loco was heading an Amtrak Cascades service consisting of Talgo-built passenger coaches, which, together with the loco, partly ended up on the highway the train was crossing. With Positive Train Control not yet introduced on the route, it could not prevent the train from overspeeding. Sadly, multiple fatalities have been reported by the local authorities.
