Amtrak Train Hits Car on Orwood Road in Brentwood Killing 3 Women
BRENTWOOD, CA (June 27, 2022) – Three women died in a car and train accident on Orwood Road in Brentwood on Sunday afternoon, June 26.
The accident happened around 1:00 p.m. on a long rural dirt driveway in the 3800 block of Orwood Road near Bixler Road.
According to the Contra Costa Sheriff Department, the westbound Amtrak train slammed into the four-door sedan at a private crossing with no railroad. The impact sent the car off the dirt driveway and into a parked SUV.
As a result, three women – all over the age of 50 – died at the scene. They were not yet identified.
A child and two men suffered severe injuries. Another person had moderate injuries.
None of the 81 passengers or five crew members of the train was injured in the crash.
