Page County man killed by Amtrak train

At 4:56 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 16, Virginia State Police Trooper P. Domingoes was called to the 11200 block of Remington Road for a fatal collision between an Amtrak train and passenger vehicle. A 1990 Chevrolet Cavalier was crossing the railroad tracks when it pulled into the path of a northbound Amtrak train. The train was unable to stop in time and struck the car.

The driver of the Cavalier, James E. Wood, 54, of Shenandoah, Va. (Town of Shenandoah in Page County), died at the scene.

The Amtrak train was en route north from Charlottesville to Washington, D.C., with 200 passengers on board. No one on the train was injured.

The crossing has double tracks and is “uncontrolled” – meaning it has only a posted stop sign and RR crossing sign…no controlled arm or flashing lights.

The incident remains under investigation at this time.
