Serious Accident In New York

Car accidents are never fun, especially when they involve trains. An accident involving a car and a train can be devastating.

There was one fatality on Sunday afternoon when a southbound Metro-North train hit an automobile on the tracks at the Long Ridge Road railroad crossing.

According to Metro-North police, who are in charge of the investigation, a Subaru, was traveling south over the tracks when it was struck by the train, which was carrying no passengers, at 1:20 p.m. There were no reported injuries to the train crew.

Based on the MTA police’s preliminary investigation, the lights on the crossbucks at the crossing were flashing at the time of the incident, signaling the approach of a train. There are no crossing gates at that crossing.

The train’s event recorder showed the train was going 50 mph, which is the speed limit at that section of the track.

Metro-North Authority police have released the names of the individuals in the car: Wayne, Balacky, 21, of Danbury, a passenger in the car, was pronounced dead at Danbury Hospital on Sunday afternoon. The female driver of the automobile, Jausheema Perkins, 19, a Danbury resident, was taken to Danbury Hospital suffering from head injuries. Fakeem Morning, 19, and James Redmond , 21, both of Danbury, were each taken to Danbury Hospital with leg injuries and both were transferred to Westchester Medical Center in Valhalla, N.Y.

Redding police initially assisted Metro-North police at the scene. Police Chief Douglas Fuchs said on Sunday that the Redding police’s traffic accident reconstructionist was assisting Metro-North police.

Simpaug Turnpike was closed just after the West Redding railroad crossing in the vicinity of the post office while the accident was under investigation at the scene.

As a result of the accident, train service on the Danbury branch of Metro-North Railroad was temporarily suspended for the 3:11 p.m. and subsequent trains and replaced with bus service operating between Danbury and South Norwalk. Train service resumed with the 7:43 p.m. train departing from Danbury to South Norwalk.

The Metro-North police’s investigation is continuing.

Meanwhile, gates for this crossing are being looked into, Ms. Anders said, adding this is an issue in which Metro-North works with the state of Connecticut.
