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 ARASA Lodge 5092 member Peter Adamovich was the supervisor who tragically lost his life while attempting to save the backhoe operator during the collision. He was a member of TCU for over 34 years.
“Everyone at TCU mourns the tragic accident that took the life of Brother Adamovich. Our thoughts and prayers are with the families at this difficult time,” said TCU National Representative Mike Miller.
