A train collision in South Carolina is  claiming the lives of two Amtrak workers.  Governor Henry McMaster  confirmed the deaths during a news conference this morning.  He said 116  of the nearly 150 passengers were taken to local hospitals with  injuries that vary from minor to more serious.  He said the dead were  among the eight crew members on the passenger train.  McMaster said he  believes the Amtrak train struck a stationary CSX freight train on a  side track in Cayce, South Carolina.  He said it "appears"  the passenger train was on the wrong track.  The NTSB and FBI will be  part of the investigation into the cause of the crash.
