Railroad And Railway Crossing Accidents

Railroad crossing accidents are some of the most devastating public transportation accidents. Even a train moving at a relatively low speed can cause serious or even fatal injuries to a motorist or pedestrian.

Railways are expected to be set up and functioning properly to prevent train accidents. Unfortunately, this isn't always the case. There were 1,896 incidents at public highway rail crossings in the U.S. in 2009 that resulted in 247 deaths and 705 injuries, according to the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT).
