Chase, Maryland, 1987.


"On Sunday January 4th 1987, Amtrak's Colonial Pulled out of Union Station in Washington DC carrying 616 passengers and crew on 12 cars. 63 minutes later it was entering Chase Maryland at a speed of 128 miles per hour. Just ahead were three Conrail (freight) Locomotives that failed to stop at a switch. The result was a major collision which in the end left 16 people dead and 184 injured.... [Conrail engineer] Gates and his brakeman tested positive for marijuana in their urine and blood plasma, revealed the Federal Railroad Administration. The tests couldn't pinpoint when the marijuana was ingested, and the results didn't establish that the men were intoxicated at the time of the crash, reported some drug experts. Tissue tests showed the dead Amtrak engineer, Jerome Evans, 35, had no drug traces." (Middle River Volunteer Fire Corps)
