On April 3, 2016, Amtrak Train 89 collided with a backhoe performing track maintenance work in the Northeast Corridor near Chester, PA.
The accident took the lives of two Amtrak track workers and injured approximately three dozen passengers aboard the train.
TCU-IAM ARASA Lodge 5092 member Peter Adamovich was the supervisor who tragically lost his life while attempting to save the backhoe operator during the collision. Adamovich was a TCU member for over 34 years.
“Everyone at TCU mourns the tragic accident that took the life of Brother Adamovich,” said TCU National Representative Mike Miller. “Our thoughts and prayers are with the families at this difficult time.”
TCU-IAM is staying up to date with the National Transportation Board investigation into the crash.
