According to NJ Online, three people were injured on April 12 when a tractor-trailer collided with a light rail train in Camden. The train was heading south from the Walter Rand Transportation Center to the Entertainment Center when a tractor trailer, traveling on a parallel road, veered onto the tracks and hit it.
The train was carrying 60 passengers, three of which were taken to Cooper University Hospital for minor injuries. There has been no update as to the health of the driver of the truck.
A thorough investigation should clear up some obvious questions surrounding this accident. What caused the driver to lose control of the truck? It is fortunate that more people were not injured or killed in this accident—there is potential for great damage when a tractor-trailer collides with a train.
