Putting Lives Back Together After the Metrolink Crash
The Ventura County Star has an article, Oak Park man focuses on the positive after surviving Metrolink crash: Though seriously hurt, he says he's 'fortunate to have survived,' by Kitty Dill. Here's an excerpt:
Michael R. McReynolds considers himself lucky to be at home in Ventura County, recuperating and able to enjoy his 50th birthday on Sept. 30.
The Oak Park resident survived the Metrolink crash Sept. 12.
"I feel very fortunate to have survived, actually," said McReynolds, who was on the commuter train when it slammed head-on into a freight train in Chatsworth.
When the locomotives collided, McReynolds likely was in his usual second-car location, but he's not sure. He had only partial recall afterward at Holy Cross Hospital in Mission Hills.
