Robeson County, NC (November 24, 2018) – In Robeson County, one person was struck in a serious train accident on Thursday evening near the Red Springs community. The individual was quickly transported to the hospital, but their condition remains unclear.
Police say that the accident happened around 5:32 p.m. that evening when the Amtrak train had been traveling to Miami and suddenly came into contact with the individual. They say that the person was not supposed to be there at the time.
There were approximately 156 passengers on board and none of them were injured. The train was stationed for quite some time until it moved again and law enforcement are still investigating what caused this accident to occur.
We would like to take a moment to extend our thoughts and prayers to the party who was seriously injured in this accident. Train accidents are some of the most serious and even fatal accidents that take place throughout North Carolina and can very easily lead to some of the most devastating results.
Train Accident in North Carolina
Though train accidents are actually quite rare, they continue to happen every year across North Carolina, causing serious injuries and fatalities to those involved. They are, in fact, so deadly that you are actually 20 times more likely to die in a crash involving a train than in a collision with a motor vehicle, which is why safety measures must be taken to prevent these accidents at all times.
