Two Different Drivers, Two Different Trains, 2 Train Accidents

Car accident with two small cars and a train

Yesterday, in Meridian Township, Michigan, two different vehicles were involved in similar, yet separate car-train accidents. The accidents occurred 5 hours apart from each other at the Okemos Road crossing just north of Grand River Ave.

Both drivers disobeyed logic and the traffic signal to drive around closing train barricades. Both drivers then got stuck on the train tracks and were hit by the oncoming trains.

Two different drivers, two different train accidents, and it all happened in 1 day. Following the first accident, Lansing’s hazardous material team had to be called to the scene to clean up the mess of propane that spilled.

The driver in that accident was able to get out of her car before it was hit. The second accident involved a drunk driver who was in his car on impact but walked away uninjured. This driver was arrested and will likely face DUI charges as the investigation continues.

Goodwin & Scieszka wants to remind you that it’s easier to just wait for the train. Don’t disobey train traffic signals and this type of accident wont happen to you.

If you’ve been injured in a car or train accident, then you may be entitled to a settlement or financial compensation. Unfortunately, many victims will not receive their fair and just compensation because they don’t contact a skilled attorney. The legal road is bumpy for those who are not familiar with the court system, and we have the experience to fight for the financial award you deserve.  Don’t settle for little or nothing just because a large corporation tries to intimidate you. We have inside information that they don’t want you to know.  Don‘t risk waiting.
