    Amtrak has set up a Help Line for those with questions regarding the deadly crash in Reno, Nevada, Friday that left at least five people dead.

    Friends and family members of those who were aboard the train can call: 1-800-523-9101 for information.

    The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) dispatched a go-to team on Friday to the scene.  Its experienced investigators will try to determine what caused the tragic crash that killed five, including the truck driver who rammed the train at a crossing, and four others on board.  At least 60 are reported to have been taken to area hospitals.

    Local and state rescue squads as well as a nearby Naval air station rushed to help those in the crash that occurred at a rail crossing.

    According to Operation LifeSafer, last year there were more than 2,000 collisions at rail crossings in the United States between trains and vehicles. 

    The NTSB is expected to hold a press conference regarding the tragic truck-train crash Saturday.
