3 Injured, 2 Seriously, After Train Strikes Livery Cab in NY


A livery cab was struck by a Long Island Rail Road (LIRR) train after it somehow got onto the tracks west of Wyandanch station last Wednesday.

A Lincoln Town Car was hit by a LIRR train at the crossing on Straight Path about 1:20 p.m. on January 7. How the vehicle got on the tracks remains a mystery. The train, carrying 500 passengers, was heading east from Penn Station, due at Ronkonkoma at 1:37 p.m. The driver of the cab was taken to Good Samaritan Hospital Medical Center, LIRR spokesman Salvatore Arena told New York Newsday (Newsday). A female passenger was airlifted to Stony Brook University Hospital. The engineer suffered a shoulder injury and was taken to Southside Hospital in Bay Shore.  PIX 11 reported that both the driver and the passenger were critically injured.

Two of the train’s cars reached the platform shortly after the crash, allowing the passengers to escape by walking through the train to reach the platform, according to Newsday.

The crash resulted in a suspension of service between Ronkonkoma and Farmingdale until shortly after 3 p.m. Buses were ordered to transport the passengers, Newsday reported.
