In Miami today, a car was hit by a train near Northeast Second Avenue and 73rd Street.
Authorities believe the female driver was attempting to drive eastbound on the tracks when the vehicle was struck by the train.
According to police, the car was dragged about a quarter of a mile down the train tracks. The car was then dislodged from the train before the train came to a stop at Northeast 79th Street near Fourth Court.
The car had extensive damage from the crash but fortunately she did not sustain any injuries.
Attorney Jason Weisser of Shuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded to this accident with a car verses a train: “Whenever you are approaching a railroad crossing always error on the conservative side and stop and wait until the train passes before you proceed”.
