On Friday, January 3rd, two families’ lives were changed forever when an Amtrak train collided with a Mitsubishi Gallant. The passenger, a 21 year old woman, was killed and the driver, a 24 year old man, is currently listed in serious condition. Both the driver and passenger were from Laurinburg in Scotland County. It is easy to imagine the impact that this tragedy will have on the lives of so many people.
As is often the case with accidents, the damage done goes far beyond the most obvious injuries and fatalities. Families will always grieve the loss of loved ones and the injured will carry the very real pain and the remaining scars for the rest of their lives. Beyond the emotional and physical trauma is the financial loss incurred in the resulting long term treatment for the survivors. Hospital bills, medication, and funeral arrangements as well as loss of income all compound to create an even heavier burden for the families of victims in an already difficult and traumatizing time.
