Railroad Accidents

As technology improves and grows more efficient, it seems like accidents involving mass transportation should by now be a thing of the past. Unfortunately, railroad accidents happen nearly every day. Most Southern California residents will remember the cataclysmic Chatsworth train collision, the worst accident in Metrolink history, which claimed 25 lives and injured 135 more in 2008.

Many factors can cause a railroad accident: a car stalled on the railroad track, mechanical failure, faulty signals, or a conductor’s carelessness may all play a role. No matter what causes a derailment or collision, however, the effects are always devastating—even when non-passenger trains are involved. Many freight train accidents lead to chemical spills that can contaminate surrounding neighborhoods and lead to sickness and birth defects for years into the future.
