Traffic Accident with Train Totals $300,000 Car

downloadOne of the cause for train wrecks are tractor-trailer drivers that take chances. Many railroad tracks are elevated above the main street level. That small hill can become a trap by catching the bottom of vehicle. Many intersections have signs warning drivers with trailers to find another route.

There was no injury in this particular incident, but one man did receive a nasty surprise. The driver of a tractor trailer in Florida got caught and left his vehicle to avoid getting hit by a train. That trailer was carrying something special, a $300,000 McLaren. The car was totaled in the accident. The owner of the vehicle seemed to take it in stride though. The driver of the tractor-trailer will be cited for the incident.

The train wreck also caused several other commercial and passenger trains to be delayed until the investigation was complete.

The driver of the trailer is lucky, all things considered. When trains hit an unexpected object, there is a high chance that they could derail. A derailed train carrying passengers can cause significant numbers of injuries and deaths.
