Driver Injured in a Crash with a Train
Traffic accidents are a daily occurrence in areas where there are lots of people living and driving. But when you think of a car crash, you don't usually expect a train to be involved. In this case, however, a woman in her truck was hit by a TRE train and hospitalized because of it. WFAA.com did a story about this train-vehicle collision. The train tracks at East Gilbert Road just east of the West Irving Station were the scene for a massive collision when a TRE train struck a truck that was stopped on the tracks. DART officials said the collision took place in the morning, around 9:45 a.m., as the train was heading west. It was confirmed that the woman who was injured and hospitalized in the crash was, in fact, in the vehicle when the train hit the truck, but it was not revealed whether she had been the one driving the vehicle. After the crash, both westbound and eastbound tracks had to be closed down, because the scene of the accident was investigated and crews worked on clearing the scene. Officials have not released the identity and condition of the woman injured in the crash. Car accidents can have a devastating impact on a person's life. If you or a loved one have been injured in car accident that was not caused by you, you may be eligible for compensation.
