Commuter Train Collision

On August 22, 2017, shortly after midnight, a train pulling into the 69th Street Terminal Center in Upper Darby, PA collided with an unoccupied train car, resulting in approximately 42 injuries.  All injuries have been reported to be non life threatening and the incident is currently still under investigation. This incident, the tragic Amtrak accident in Philadelphia in May of 2015 as well as the Hoboken train crash in September of 2016 are stark reminders of the importance of safety,  awareness and how we must work together as a community to make sure we are all safe. Locks Law has the affected persons as well as their families in our thoughts today, as no one should be worried about the safety of a family member going to work.

The National Transportation Safety Board reported in 2015 that railway accidents are the second most common accident type (highway coming in first and aviation and marine accidents coming in third and fourth).  Statistically speaking, the frequency of travel via these two mediums (highway and railway) are much higher since these are the two most common commute types according to the Population Reference Bureau.

For any questions regarding safety conditions or injuries incurred during the commute of you or a loved one, please don’t hesitate to contact us at 1-866-LOCKS LAW (866-562-5752).
