Teenage Girls Killed in Train Accident

Teenage Girls Killed in Train Accident

While walking on railroad tracks near their school, two teenagers were struck and killed by an Amtrak train in Delaware County yesterday morning.

The girls, reported as at Interboro Senior High School students Gina Gentile and Vanessa Dorwart, from Glenolden, were supposed to be in class at the time of the 10:30 incident. A third girl was with them when the accident occurred, reports say. She was uninjured.

The incident happened on a cold morning amid the snow of a winter storm. They were struck near the Norwood SEPTA station by a southbound, high-speed Acela train running between Boston and Washington. The train can get up to a speed of 110 m.p.h. through that area, reports say.

The girls had apparently been upset about the death last month of Gentile's boyfriend, William Bradley V, 17, who was hit and killed by a car while riding his bicycle. There is a possibility the girls might have committed suicide. Police are also still investigating.

In the event of a train injury, there is possible compensatory relief for the families of the victims.

  1. After an accident, the responsible party's insurance company may try to reduce the claim amount. Commonly, insurance adjusters are trained to get information from the injured to assist in reducing the claim. Though some insurers are less guilty of this practice than others, it is important to realize that insurance companies are profit-oriented corporations and reducing claims results in increased profits for shareholders. This can create a situation for the injured in which they are offered a settlement that does not truly reflect the damages suffered. If you accept this settlement, you lose the ability to get more money should your injuries require further medical treatments. It is critical that victims get legal assistance in any personal injury case, and The Doan Law Firm is prepared to fight relentlessly for your rights.
