Two Injured in Car – Light Rail Train Crash
A car collided with a light-rail train in Bloomington Monday afternoon. The driver of the car and a train passenger were transported to the hospital with neck and back injuries.
A spokesman for Metro Transit reported that the driver of the train was able to slow down before the crash, but could not stop the train in time. The Chevrolet Malibu was exiting from eastbound Interstate 494, toward 34th Avenue South, when the brakes failed. The woman driving was not able to stop and crossed the path of the southbound Hiawatha Line train.
Metro Transit is investigating the incident, but it appears the car’s mechanical failures are to blame.
Any auto collision can be a very traumatic experience for everyone involved. If a vehicle malfunctioned, there may be a case for product liability. A product can be found deficient if it has a manufacturer’s defect or a design defect. It takes an aggressive litigator to investigate, persuade, and win deserved compensation.
