News reports from San Mateo California state that a man in his 40s was struck by a Caltrain around 3:15 p.m. on Wednesday Dec. 8. The northbound train No. 155 struck the man resulting in his death. Authorities are unsure if the death was a result of an accident or a suicide. A delivery driver witnessed the incident and ran to the tracks to help only to find out he was too late. He then called 911. According to Christine Dunn spokeswoman for Caltrain this is the 11th fatality on Caltrain tracks this year.
By their nature train accidents can cause severe personal injury or loss of life. These tragic fatal accidents can sometimes have many causes and seeking the liable parties in such incidents can sometimes prove to be difficult. An outside investigation may be conducted in order to ensure that the liable parties are both identified and held accountable.
