When cars get into collisions with trains, catastrophic injuries are often the result for the occupants of the much smaller vehicles. One recent California train accident caused fatal injuries to a woman who was only in her mid-20s. At last report, officials were still investigating the exact factors surrounding the train collision and the woman's potential wrongful death.
Head-on motor vehicle accidents number among some of the most deadly collisions on American roadways. This is especially true when the motor vehicle accident occurs on a state route or highway where drivers are often traveling at a high rate of speed. One recent California head-on collision claimed the life of a 53-year-old Oceanside mother and sent several of her family members to the hospital.
