Elderly Injured in Novelty Train Accident

Elderly Injured in Novelty Train Accident

Eight senior citizens were injured, and a lawsuit has been filed after a train accident. The incident happened over a year ago when eight elder people were riding a novelty train when it flipped over, injuring everyone on board. The eight people on board were residents of a retirement home, McKendree Village. The retirement home hired Active Entertainment to provide the novelty train ride. During an investigation, it was uncovered the train was a lawnmower that had been converted into a train and Active Entertainment did not have the proper permit to operate the train. The lawsuit is against McKendree Village and Active Entertainment. One of the victims and former resident of McKendree Village suffered internal bleeding and fractured bones. She is suing the retirement community for $1 million. The victim's lawyer claims the retirement home should have investigated who they were hiring to put 12 adults on a kiddie train and drive them around. McKendree Village claims no fault in the matter, and Active Entertainment is closed for business.
