Car Driver Trying to Beat Utah (UT) Commuter Train Kills Self, Passenger

In his latest post to the Railroad Accident/FELA Lawyers Blog, my colleague John C. relates the news of a light-rail crossing accident in which a car’s driver and passenger died and two other people riding in the car suffered critical injuries. The accident occurred in Salt lake City, Utah (UT), and crossing gates were reportedly down, meaning the car wound up in the TRAX train’s path despite seemingly adequate warning and the presence of a physical barrier. John notes that railroad track crossing accident put car and truck drivers, rail crew members and train passenger at serious risk. He also concludes that crossing signals and barriers only work when people heed them.
