Authorities say 33 people have been injured in a train crash at a station in suburban Broward County.
A spokeswoman for the Florida Transportation Authority says it happened when an inbound High Speed Line train crashed into an unoccupied parked train at the 69th Street Terminal in Pembroke Pines, the Florida Highway Patrol officials reports.
The spokeswoman says 33 people aboard the train were injured. In a briefing, the Pembroke Pines Mayor said the victims were taken to area hospitals. He says at least four people suffered serious injuries.
“Pembroke Pines received a call that an inbound high-speed train came into the terminal and hit a stationed car that was sitting in the terminal unoccupied,” witness told reporters. “There was blood everywhere,” a passenger tells The Florida Highway Patrol officials and The Post. “There was this driver all banged up and there was this one girl bleeding out of her face pretty bad.” None of the injuries are believed to be life-threatening.
The cause of the crash still remains under investigation. But the Florida Highway Patrol officials said alcohol and drugs might have been the major cause of the train crash in Broward County.
Accident attorney Jason Weisser of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded to this unfortunate crash. “This is a serious train crash, which ultimately, injured 33 victims. We wish the victims a speedy recovery and hope the investigators can quickly determine what caused the accident. Please be careful and obey the speed limits whenever you are driving a motorcycle, car, SUV or truck. We hope that all parties involved consult with an experienced trial lawyer. If you have been injured in an accident, call my office for a free consultation and find out what your rights are.”
