Dozens Injured in Metrolink Train Collision in Oxnard

On February 24, 2015, a number of people have been transported to a local hospital after a commuter train struck a large truck and trailer. According to ABC7 News, at least 28-people have been injured with 4-people in critical condition. The train occupied 49 passengers, 3 of which were crew members. The Metrolink train engineer was the most critically injured of the nine patients at the hospital. He suffered severe injuries to his chest and heart, said Dr. Bryan Wong, chief medical officer at Ventura County Medical Center. Wong says the train engineer is showing positive signs and complete coherence.

The driver of the vehicle involved was Jose Alejandro Sanchez Ramirez, 54, of Yuma, Arizona. He was taken to the Ventura County Medical Center for observation. He underwent several tests that doctors would not disclose and was arrested on suspicion of felony hit-and-run following his release from the hospital.

The victims who suffered injuries were typical of high-speed accident, including head trauma, back injuries and broken bones, but nothing life-threatening.
