Couple Injured in Train Crash in 2017 Sues LIRR

Couple Injured in Train Crash in 2017 Sues LIRR


In 2017, a Brooklyn couple was hurt in a train crash while riding the Long Island Rail Road. The husband and wife are suing the Long Island Rail Road for failing to stop the wreck.

The victims were Joseph and Helen Bua; they were two of dozens of passengers who flew out of their seats when a train plowed through a metal barrier while pulling into Atlantic Terminal January of last year. This information comes from the lawsuit they filed in Queens Supreme Court.

The two of them suffered many personal injuries, and they were injured along with over 100 other people who were injured.

The National Transportation Safety Board found that the operator of this train could have been suffering from sleep apnea and might have nodded off and caused the accident.

Three other people who were injured in the accident have filed a case against the Long Island Rail Road already.
