A freight train struck a car after it drove around the flashing railroad gate, killing a female passenger and injuring the driver and another passenger.
The driver of this car mostly likely knew a train was coming because the gates were down and the flashing lights were on. Never try and beat a train. Once those lights start blinking and the safety arms go down, STOP. Even if you think you have enough time to snake through the gates before the train gets to you, don't do it. You're putting your life and the lives of your friends and family in danger. Be smart.
Our experienced Kansas City Personal Injury Attorneys want you to be safe while you're out driving and one of the trickiest thing to do is cross a train track. That's why it is important to STOP, LOOK and LISTEN!
