Railroad accidents are nearly always tragic, especially when they involve pedestrians or motor vehicles. Such accidents may result from negligence on the part of the pedestrian or motor vehicle driver, such as failing to obey signals at crossing. Just as tragic, are accidents which are the fault of the train engineer or other crew, the railroad itself, or another party. For example, it is not uncommon for railroad crossings to fall into disrepair, sometimes below minimum safely regulation. This may greatly increase the risk of accident.
