Clayton, North Carolina Man Killed by Train

Comments (0)

According to authorities on Sunday night in Clayton, NC a man was hit and killed by a freight train located near Shotwell Rd. The victim's name was not released. The train was carrying ethanol. However, there were no leaks, officials said.

Because train wrecks usually cause widespread property damage as well as injury or death, the intentional wrecking of a train in regular service is often treated as an extremely serious crime.

For example, in the U.S. state of California, the penalty for intentionally causing a non-fatal train wreck is life imprisonment with the possibility of parole. For a fatal train wreck, the possible sentences are either life without the possibility of parole, or death.
