YONKERS, N.Y., Feb. 10, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Legal-Bay LLC, The Lawsuit Settlement Funding Company, reports that a deadly railroad accident occurred Tuesday, February 3rd when a Metro-North train hit an SUV that was on the tracks. It was the deadliest crash to ever occur in the railroad's history. The Metro-North train was passing through Westchester County around 6:30 pm when it struck the SUV on the tracks at a crossing at Commerce Street in Valhalla, NY. The SUV was stopped on the tracks and the crossing gates were down when the train struck the SUV, resulting in a fire that consumed not only the vehicle but the first car of the train as well. Amidst the collision and explosion, the third rail of the track went through the front train car. The driver of the SUV was killed as well as six people aboard the train. Ten others were seriously injured, and two people aboard the train had injuries that were not life-threatening. The victims were taken to local hospitals. Investigations are being made on how and why this happened.
Patty Kirby, COO and Head of Client Relations, commented on the recent incident, "The recent accident on the Metro-North train that was traveling to the New Haven Connecticut area was a true tragedy that will most likely end up with numerous wrongful death and personal injury lawsuits being filed. However, liability in these types of accidents can be difficult to prove, and unfortunately, injured parties or families of wrongful death suits could wait years until the cases are settled or adjudicated through the courts. Fortunately for plaintiffs who cannot wait until their settlement checks arrive, they have immediate access to our pre-settlement cash advance programs."
