Railroad Crossing Injuries
In 2012, according to the Federal Railroad Administration, there were 1,960 vehicle-train collisions at highway rail-grade crossings. There were a reported 271 deaths and 930 railroad crossing injuries. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that a motorist is almost 20 times more likely to die in a crash involving a train than in a collision involving another motor vehicle.
Railroad companies are required by law to ensure that crossings are well marked and safe for traffic.
