On Monday, April 4, 2022, around 3:00 p.m., a Brightline train crashed with a car on the rails in Aventura. Surveillance footage from a neighboring business shows the motorist of the gray car swerving around a white SUV, then onto the rails and into the direction of the train. The vehicle appears to have driven in the westbound lane against traffic and across the eastbound gate, which seemed to be broken. Aventura police were on the scene of the crash, which occurred shortly after 3 p.m. near 21500 E. Dixie Highway, exactly on the border separating Hallandale Beach and Aventura. Parts of the car, including what seems to be its engine and gearbox, were seen scattered over the pavement. According to witnesses, the driver, who has yet to be named, was able to just walk away from the collision and was taken to a local hospital. The automobile was eventually taken away from the site. Several cars have attempted to circumvent the safety gates in recent months. Passengers on a Brightline train were stranded for more than two hours last week when it crashed with a tractor trailer towing a Tesla. Drivers were advised to seek an alternative route by officials.

As a result, any damage, stress, or financial crisis caused by an accident must be addressed seriously and handled by skilled legal counsel.

Last Thursday, December 30 around 6, a collision leaving two people dead in Aventura, Florida after a train collided with their car. Surveillance video shows the car going around railroad crossing gates and temporarily being trapped on the tracks before being struck by the train. The automobile was partially covered by a tarp, which normally suggests a fatality. Police have not disclosed the identity of the two people slain since their relatives have not yet been contacted.

While no vehicle should go under barriers, having so many level crossings in a big urban area on a commuter train that aspires to operate a high-speed service appears to be a hazard. The Aventura crash scene is in a rather busy area, less than a mile from Aventura Hospital and Gulfstream Park horse track and casino.

The crash was caused directly by the driver’s conduct, according to Brightline. It’s tough to argue with the assertion based on the video evidence. Brightline has installed its own camera system to monitor railroad crossings in North Miami Beach as part of an attempt to improve safety at railroad crossings.
