10/24/09 116 W - + 16 - 9 Two Train Collisions within Four Hours in Fayetteville

Or perhaps better titled Job Security for First Responders. Twice overnight in Fayetteville, vehicles were struck by trains after becoming stuck on railroad trucks in road construction zones. Both times, the driver ignored and drove around construction barriers. The first collision occurred at Moore and Orange streets around 9:30 p.m. Three injuries included two children, and on still in serious condition. No injuries on passenger train. The second collision occurred at 121 Whitfield Street about 1:20 a.m. Driver left scene. No injuries on passenger train. And readers everywhere the next day were shaking their heads. Read the WRAL story. The first accident is also reported by the Fayetteville Observer.
