The accident happened around 8:52 am at the Wardlow Station near Pacific Plane and Wardlow Road. A pedestrian was struck by a Blue Line train for an unknown reason.
The pedestrian was rescued by emergency personnel and rushed to a hospital in unknown condition. The accident remains under open investigation at this time to determine cause and liability. This is the second serious accident within the last month at Wardlow station.

“Almost one death or injury per day occurs on the rail system in the United States. Many of these tragic deaths are avoidable, the rail system is antiquated and needs a complete overhaul to ensure the safety of pedestrians, drivers, and train passengers,” said the attorneys from Lexton Law.
