August 13, 2011, ERIE, PA — Every three hours there is a collision between trains and motor vehicles. 25% of those collisions involve tractor-trailers. The risk of fatality is five times greater in a Pennsylvania train crash than in any other Pennsylvania motor vehicle collision. In short, the numbers point to one inescapable conclusion: train crashes should be avoided.
One public safety group is doing its part to diminish the number of Pennsylvania truck/train collisions. Operation Lifesavers, Inc., is offering a short, free, interactive on-line safety course designed to help professional truck drivers avoid train collisions in Pennsylvania and elsewhere.
