Pasadena, CA (October 18, 2019) – A man was struck and injured by a Gold Line train in Pasadena early on Friday morning, October 18th. Police confirmed that the accident happened at the Allen Street station around 3:08 a.m.
According to authorities, the victim was hit by the train and ultimately ended up trapped. Firefighters were dispatched to the scene where they promptly worked to extricate the man. The victim was immediately transported to a nearby hospital where he was listed in critical condition.
Paramedics also examined the conductor of the train at the scene but no further information was reported. The cause of the pedestrian-train collision is under investigation.
Our thoughts are with the victim and his family at this time. We hope for a full recovery.
Every year, numerous pedestrians are injured and often killed in collisions with many different types of vehicles in California. While not the most common, train accidents in California which also involve a pedestrian, are likely among the most severe types of collisions. The power of such vehicles and the vulnerability of pedestrians will almost always result in devastating injuries or death.
Catastrophic and fatal accidents can occur at any time, resulting in not only the pain and suffering of losing a family member but the burden of extremely high expenses as well. While it may be difficult, it is terribly important for both victims and bereaved family members to understand that they may likely have substantial rights at this time.
