Pedestrian Killed By Train in Simi Valley

By Ross Jurewitz on March 28, 2012 - Comments off

A man was killed after being struck by a train in Simi Valley on March 26, 2012, around 7:50 p.m. near the 600 block of Cochran Street. According to Simi Valley Police, the man was walking along the tracks with another person when he was hit and killed by the Metrolink’s Train 123, which travels from Los Angeles to Ventura. The other person escaped unhurt in this serious train accident.

The victim sustained critical injuries and was pronounced dead at the accident scene. According to police, the double decker train was on the westbound side of the tracks about 70 yards from the Madera Street overpass and was carrying passengers at the time. If the train operator is determined to have been at fault in this case, then he could be held financially responsible for the injuries and damages caused.

The victim’s family members should immediately seek counsel from an experienced Ventura County train accident lawyer who would educate them about their legal rights.

The victim’s family members may file a wrongful death claim against the train operator to obtain compensation to cover funeral and burial costs, and other related damages.

Our law office sends sincere condolences to the victim’s family members.
