Washington D.C. Metro Crash Jolts Personal Injury Attorneys from Coast to Coast
Date:7/9/2009

Preliminary findings suggest that this terrible accident may have been avoidable, and New York personal injury attorney David Perecman is on the alert.

New York, NY (PRWEB) June 29, 2009 -- The collision of two trains on the Washington Metro's Red Line has killed at least nine people and injured at least 79, according to the latest news update from The Washington Post.

The collision, which left one train crushing the top of the other, was the worst in the Metro's 33-year history.

According to the report, one train was stopped on the tracks, waiting for clearance as a preceding train exited the Fort Totten, Md. station. Without slowing down, a second train slammed into the stopped train from behind, launching its front car on top of the crumpled rear car of the stopped train.

The severity of the injuries ranged from minor to critical.

The precise cause of the crash is so far unknown, though, experts and New York personal injury attorney, David Perecman, speculate that it was a result of both a faulty computerized sensor system and operator error. The sensor system is designed to stop trains when a problem occurs on a track, including, when one train comes too close to another. Investigators are also considering the fact that the speeding train was comprised of older model cars that the National Transportation Safety Board had recommended be replaced or retrofitted over three years ago because of concerns about safety in a crash, reports the Post.
