Nine People Killed and 76 Injured in Washington, D.C. Metro Train Accident

It’s been a week since a commuter train in Washington, D.C. collided into the back of another parked train on the Metro line. The train accident left nine families suffering from the wrongful deaths of their loved ones and 76 other people suffered injuries from the train accident.

The Washington, D.C. train accident happed on the Metro system’s red line, which is the busiest line in Washington, D.C. due to running the length of the Maryland border. According to reports, one train stopped short on the tracks when it was smashed from behind by another train. It is still unclear why the second train could not stop, but authorities are looking at computer malfunctions and not the train operator’s actions.

Nearby witnesses say that the train accident was so loud and severe it sounded like thunder. Passengers on the train were thrown against other seats, people, windows, and walls giving them serious injuries. Investigators are already saying that the train accident is the worst in Washington, D.C.’s history.

Metro accidents such as this are very complex events because there are numerous victims and people who could be held responsible for the injuries. If you or one of your family members has been injured in a train accident, please contact an experienced train accident attorney near you to find out if you can recover compensation for your injuries.
