Statement From Governor Larry Hogan Regarding Amtrak Train Derailment

ANNAPOLIS, MD – Governor Larry Hogan released the following statement in response to the Amtrak train derailment:

“I was deeply saddened to learn of the tragic Amtrak crash that occurred in Pennsylvania last night. My thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families, as well as the first responders who are working hard to save and care for survivors. The news that a Naval Academy midshipmen was among those killed is heartbreaking, and my deepest sympathies go out to his family.

Our administration is also in contact with the authorities on the ground and is working to confirm information about any potential Marylanders who may be affected.”
