It’s not often that train wrecks occur, and it’s even more uncommon that they happen several times within one month. Furthermore, in Monroe, Louisiana there have been three separate train crashes, all which happened in one month. The first crash occurred in the beginning of October when a tractor-trailer and train collided after the truck became stuck on the tracks. The second accident happened a few weeks later which included yet another semi which became stuck on the tracks again. Lastly, the third and final crash happened Saturday when a car failed to yield, and was subsequently hit by a train.
Although the train accidents happened on different tracks throughout the area, DOTD is looking into the incidents, and some projects are set to be underway. Monroe Department of Transportation employee, Thomas Hill believes that the reason for so many tractor-trailers getting stuck on the tracks is because the trailers are so low to the ground. Hill also advises that semi drivers should stick to their course, and not take any detours to help avoid such accidents.
