No Charges in Children's Train Ride Crash

| Jul 19, 2011

No criminal charges will be filed in the case of a fatal children's train ride accident in Spartanburg earlier this year, according to news reports .

Here's background on the story that I've been reporting about since March:

An inspector for a children's train at a South Carolina park that crashed, killing one child and injuring many others, has admitted to failing to test the train before the accident, according to news reports.

The 20-year-old inspector said he did not test the children's train on Wednesday at Cleveland Park in Spartanburg because the train's battery was dead. The train crashed Saturday with nearly 30 passengers aboard. The accident killed a six-year-old boy and injured at least 17 people.

Sixteen people onboard the train, including the child who died, were members of the Corinth Baptist Church in Gaffney.

The inspector  "came forward and admitted he had filed a complete report but had not done a thorough inspection," according to news reports.

The fatal accident is being investigated. All miniature train rides at the park have been shut down during the investigation. It is unknown what caused the derailment, according to the Spartanburg Public Safety Department and the South Carolina Highway Patrol, which are leading the investigation.

Criminal charges could be filed in the incident, according to news reports.

As a  Charleston car accident lawyer , I'm saddened to hear about this fatal accident involving children. My condolences go out to the child's friends and family during this difficult time. I hope all the other children and adults who were injured in the accident are able to quickly recover from their injuries.

I hope investigators are able to determine how this collision occurred and ensure a tragic event like this never happens again. If you or a loved one has been injured in a train accident, contact a  personal injury lawyer in Charleston.
