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.
