Couple in Memorial Day train-van crash sues railroad

A husband and wife involved in a train-van crash at an Elm Grove railroad crossing during last year's Memorial Day parade are suing the Canadian Pacific Railway.

Victor Harding, the Milwaukee attorney representing Scott Partenfelder and Monica Ensley-Partenfelder, said the rail company knew about the parade and the expected increase in vehicle and pedestrian traffic at the railroad crossings, and should have taken steps to prevent an accident.

"We're seeking damages against CP Rail for causing this problem," Harding said, adding the company received multiple warnings about the additional traffic that day. "Had the train slowed down, this inevitably wouldn't have happened."

Dhampy Commentary (TM)

A woman stops her car on the tracks and it gets hit.

WHY THE **** WOULD YOU STOP ON THE TRACKS!

The sad thing is that they actually have a decent chance of winning. After all, there isn't a "Don't stop on the tracks" sign next to the tracks.

They'll probably just pay her off.

This furthers my hate for general people. I always thought it was a well known fact that stopping on train tracks with a train coming is a bad idea.

The woman obviously didn't think it though, she should have bought life insurance first.

Rookie.

My dad always tells me it's not always worth it to sue people because often it's a waste of time and you lose more than you gain.

The attorney shares my surname though haha.
