Car Collides With Train in Ann Arbor Michigan on Pontiac Trail

Our Ann Arbor car accident lawyers at Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. are reporting a car-train collision that happened at Pontiac Trail, just south of Warren. The accident happened on Friday, September 21st, around 4:30 a.m. According to police, a 23-year-old woman struck a train while it was in motion and was dragged from the intersection and into a ditch.  The 23-year old woman was taken to the hospital for her injuries suffered. The cause of this accident remains under investigation, however the fire department that was on the scene said the railroad crossing has no gate, but does have a signal.

I am so sorry to hear about this terrible accident. I hope the injured victim has a fast recovery without any permanent damages.

According to statistics, cars and trains collide approximately every 12 minutes. This equals to about 9,000 train crossing accidents per year. These accidents typically result in approximately 600 fatalities, and injure 6,000 others. In addition, most of these accidents occur because of driver error, trespassing, defective train crossings and tracks, drowsy train operators, and dangerous behavior. (more…)
