An Illinois MetroLink train accident caused a man to lose his leg. St. Clair County Sheriff’s Department is leading an investigation into just how a man was injured by a MetroLink train early in March. The family continually seeks answers on exactly how their loved one was struck by the train, breaking his neck and losing his leg. Family members say that they have not been contacted by anyone from MetroLink and their calls are not returned. The family is shocked and very concerned that no one has reached out to them. Even though the victim is in stable condition, they are waiting to hear if he will be paralyzed. St. Clair County Sheriff’s Department has not made any statements. There are many catastrophic injuries and even deaths every year involving MetroLink accidents in the Greater Saint Louis area.
