Los Angeles Metrolink Train Accident - More Twists Revealed
One of did not make it through this time.
He Survived the First Train Crash but not the Second .
There were some that thought it couldn’t happen again. But it did. It was back in 2005 that a suicidal man parked his SUV on the railroad which caused the Glendale crash of 2005 which killed 11. Juan Alvarez, 25 at the time of the crash, was the driver of the car. He got out of his car right before the train hit his SUV.
Alvarez was convicted of first-degree murder and Gregory Lintner carried Alvarez’ photo in his wallet. It was a reminder to him of what Lintner experienced as being aboard that same train that crashed. But Lintner did not expect he would experience yet another train wreck.
But he did. Lintner was a passenger on Metrolink 111 and one of the 25 that was killed. His wife Michelle was distraught at the news. She felt that her husband was just beginning to recover from that terrible incident. Lintner not only survived the Glendale crash but he stayed to help one woman who was trapped.
She calls Lintner a “hero” for staying with her till helped arrived. Lintner, 48, felt ok to get back on the train he used to commute to work. He enjoyed riding the train and the sense of community he felt with fellow train commuters.
He would talk to fellow survivors from time to time. He carried newspaper clippings of the Glendale crash in his wallet along with the photo of Alvarez. There were at least two other passengers of Metrolink 111 that were also passengers of the Glendale crash.
Willie Castro, 67 actually thought he would never ride a train again but he changed his mind. Richard Lyles, 58, really thought it could never happen to him again; he was mistaken.
