Even though it's been nine months, it seems like just yesterday when a Metro North train derailed in the Bronx, killing four and injuring 19. The wreck was supposed to spur safety measures in MTA and NYC transit, but there does not seem to be any improvement.
A Metro Transit Authority (MTA) passenger train derailed in the Bronx on Sunday, killing 4 and injuring more than 60. The train accident occurred on a sharp curve where the Harlem and Hudson Rivers meet. Unfortunately, the MTA already knew the stretch of rails is dangerous, as a freight train derailed in the same location in July.
People often wonder how someone unintentionally gets hit by a train while walking. A recent accident in New York illustrates one situation where a train collision can occur.
A New York City Transit Authority worker recently lost his life at the 46th Street station in Astoria. The 58-year-old victim from Hollis, Queens, had been working on the subway for eight years. The circumstances surrounding the subway accident raise a lot of questions.
