Many people lose their lives because of motor vehicle accidents in the US every year. Most of these mishaps happen on road. However, at times, such mishaps involve trains as well. One such accident has occurred on the tracks of the Long Island railroad.

The whole story of this deadly motor vehicle accident:

This deadly accident happened around 7:30 p.m. near the Westbury Station on Tuesday. According to officials, a passenger vehicle was approaching a warning gate at the tracks. The driver decided to drive around the gate and proceeded to collide with a commuter train that was bound for Manhattan.

Suddenly, another train coming from the opposite direction also struck the vehicle. According to Mr. Patrick Ryder, Nassau County Police Chief, the passenger vehicle was trying to beat the warning gate and the train was running at full speed at the time of the collision.

“The passenger vehicle was pushed towards the second moving train by the impact of the collision with the first train,” said Mr. Phillip Eng, The President of LIRR (Long Island Railroad). According to him, the warning gate and lights were fully functional.
