Scores Injured in Runaway Freight Car Collision

A freight train came loose from a lumberyard and rolled onto a commuter track in Boston on Tuesday. At least 150 people, including the engineer, suffered minor injuries. The collision occurred on the main line at Canton Junction.

In the 911 tapes released, train engineer Ronald Gomes can be heard asking the dispatcher for instructions as the freight car rolled toward the commuter train. Gomes began to back the train up and was hit moments later. The impact sent him to the ground where he then radioed in an emergency.

In another tape released, an employee from the lumberyard called Stoughton police to tell them that a freight car got loose, and warned them it was on the commuter line. It took fifteen minutes for the freight car to hit the commuter train.

Eighty of the 150 passengers injured were sent to area hospitals with bruises, facial cuts, and neck and back injuries.

If you, or a loved one, have been injured in a train accident, please contact an experienced injury lawyer in your area.
