Hundreds of workers who depend on the Tri-Rail train service in the Palm Beach area were late to work on Monday January 4th due to an unexpected collision near the Lake Worth Station early that morning. According to The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office, a City of Lake Worth garbage truck broke down on the train tracks shortly before 7 a.m. and was struck by a northbound Tri-Rail train before it could be removed. The accident caused the train to derail and delay train service county-wide for the entire day. As a result of the accident, twenty-two passengers were sent to the hospital, but reports say that the injuries were minor and that miraculously no one was seriously injured.
One of the Sky Train’s at Miami’s International Airport derailed early Tuesday morning, December 22nd, sending one car onto the roof of Concourse D and another off the end of the track. A maintenance worker who was aboard the train during the 2 a.m. maintenance run was taken to the hospital with minor injuries and was subsequently released. By late Tuesday afternoon, the cars had been removed from the roof of the concourse, but no timeline was in place to reopen Sky Train service. Thousands of airport travelers were forced to negotiate the concourse on foot, a task that can take upwards of twenty minutes during peak times.
