Posted By Railroad Injury Lawyer || 23-Dec-2014

Trains are large pieces of machinery, and even when they are not travelling very quickly, they can cause serious personal injury or death. Whether working for a railroad company or using a train for transportation, those injured in a train accident have rights. A recent Arkansas train crash highlights the importance of having proper representation when you are injured as a result of a train.

Arkansas Train Crash Leaves 44 Injured

A morning crash between a passenger train and a freight train left 44 injured and 5 in critical condition. The passenger train held 4 passenger cars with 44 passengers and 6 crew members on board. Only 37 people were able to walk away from the wreck with little or no injury. Emergency responders transported the injured to 31 different area hospitals, with some being airlifted by medevac helicopters.

According to reports, the passenger train began a 143-mile trip from Springdale to Van Buren and stalled before reaching their destination. The second train was dispatched to assist the passenger train but wound up colliding with the stalled one.
