On Wednesday, January 4th over a hundred people were injured when a Long Island Railroad train crashed into a bumping block at the Atlantic Terminal.
Authorities have yet to divulge why the train entered the terminal at such a high rate of speed. The train, which should have been traveling at 5mph, was operating over twice that speed.
“Though 106 LIRR passengers were taken to area hospitals to treat injuries on Wednesday, none of the injuries were life-threatening. (The most serious injury was a broken leg.) Still, at least one passenger has filed a notice of claim against the LIRR and the MTA, citing “careless, reckless, negligent acts” that led to the crash.” – The Gothamist
