An Amtrak train headed for Penn Station broke apart as it sped through Maryland on Tuesday, The New York Post reports.

The high-speed 2150 Acela was traveling north from Washington D.C. to New York City Big Apple at a speed of around 125 mph when the connector between two coupled trains broken and separated, at about 11:20 a.m. according to the newspaper.

A source told The Post: "Someone could have been walking through the train when that happened and fell to their death."

The mishap occurred two days after an Amtrak train traveling through South Carolina hit a freight train and two workers were killed.

And last Wednesday, a chartered train carrying dozens of GOP lawmakers to a Republican retreat in West Virginia struck a garbage truck south of Charlottesville, Virginia, killing at least one person on the truck and injuring others.
