68-Year-Old Driver Killed in Galt Train Collision on Spring Street and Saddle Crest Circle

Galt, California – A 68-year-old man from Walnut Creek died following a Galt train crash involving a vehicle late Thursday night on Spring Street and Saddle Crest Circle, according to the authorities.

Authorities responded to the accident at about midnight.

The driver of a Chevrolet 2500 pickup was trying to go around the closed railroad crossing gates when the pickup was hit by a southbound Union Pacific train.

The driver of the Chevrolet died in the crash.

No other injuries were reported.

The train stopped after dragging the pickup nearly 3,000 feet just south of the Spring Street crossing.

The incident remained under investigation.

Arin Khodaverdian, CEO and Managing Attorney of Alpine Law Group, urges accidents victims and their families to immediately seek legal assistance. “Those who are affected by tragedy have rights, but they must act quickly in order to preserve those rights. Swift action by an intelligent and experienced attorney is imperative in order to preserve evidence, interview witnesses and immediately begin pursuing any and all responsible parties.”

“Usually, clients hire me immediately after their first consultation because they quickly figure out that I will treat them like family. I lift a weight off their shoulders immediately. That is my job. We simply leave no stone unturned – period. We go after everyone and everything. There is no other way to ensure justice,” Mr. Khodaverdian states.

While Mr. Khodaverdian does not represent any of the parties involved in this incident, he has recovered over $100 million for thousands of injury victims and their families. “In one case, we were able to recover a 7-figure settlement within 11 business days of being hired by the family of a victim killed by a negligent driver. We have numerous other 6-figure settlements within 30 days. While these results are atypical and do not predict future outcomes, justice in these cases helped bring about closure and a swift sense of justice for the families.”
