In March, a car and a LIRR train crashed into each other which led to the death of the driver of the car.
The train was going eastbound from East Northport to Port Jefferson. This information comes from the MTA. No one who was on the train was injured in the accident.
The accident caused the car to become mangled and it ended up landing upside down near the tracks.
It wasn’t clear as to what exactly caused the accident, and it is not clear if the train struck the car or if the car hit the train. It is also not clear if the driver was dead before the train crash. The investigation into this accident is still ongoing.
The name of the victim has not yet been released. If this story is updated and we find more information, we will keep you posted.
