Communities throughout the area have provided support to victims of Monday’s fatal Amtrak crash near Mendon. Several Moberly churches were among those that provided aid to those injured and displaced by the accident. Family Life Fellowship Pastor Vic Comstock details what things were like for them in the hours following the accident.
Comstock adds by late Tuesday afternoon they had worked to get the last of the passengers to their next destination.
Approximately 40 passengers from the Amtrak train were taken care of in Moberly following the accident. Comstock says this is the kind of event Family Life Fellowship prepares for.
Monday’s accident near Mendon left four people dead. The National Transportation Safety Board continues to investigate the accident scene.
