A significant decrease in the number of injuries and fatalities caused by vehicular accidents in Arizona was perceived since the operation of the $1.4 billion light rail transit started in December of 2008. However, this light rail transit which connects Phoenix, Mesa, and Tempe also had several train-auto collisions. These collisions have also injured several passengers, light rail riders and auto drivers. Most victims of these kinds of collisions have suffered serious brain and spinal cord injuries.

Another train-auto collision happened on Monday around 9:30 a.m. AZ Central reported that a vehicle collided with the Metro Light Rail in Tempe. The driver from Iowa was making a left turn near Apache Boulevard and Dorsey Lane when he turned into the light rail track.

A lawyer that sees so many serious personal injuries, people filing bankruptcy as a result of medical bills, people who lose their homes because they cannot work after a serious accident, and so many other serious effects from car accidents in Arizona, if there is a good alternative, then we support it.
