A car left on a level crossing causes a crash which kills fifteen people though the driver cannot be found. Initially the police, led by Natalie Chandler's replacement, the recently promoted Wes Leyton, suspect the car owner, the unpleasant Michael Gennis, but learn that the car was stolen and the actual driver, Finn Tyler, intended to kill himself by driving onto the track but survived. Jake Thorne is anxious to prosecute for murder but Tyler's lawyer, Kate Barker, puts up a case of diminished responsibility by reason of insanity though the case is found. Shortly afterwards Tyler is found dead in his cell and suspicion falls on D.S. Sam Casey, being his last known visitor. Jake also learns that Kate is to join the prosecution team.

Did You Know?


During the interview with the Train Driver, he says he applied the brakes as soon as the car appeared in his view. However, during the opening video, the first sign we see something is wrong is at the moment of impact - there is no display of the train brakes being applied, as later stated. See more »

He remained at the scene. He mingled with the real passengers.

A car crashed against a commuter train, causing the death of 15 people (16 if you consider an unborn child a casualty). The car was owned by a piece of work who get used to faking car plates to avoid expensive speeding tickets. Anyway the vehicle was actually stolen by someone else in the early morning and the thief broke down the gate in order to get among rails. The attacker left the car shortly before the collision occurred, hiding himself between the wounded people. Detectives started a manhunt and after some interviews they caught a mild middle aged man who had just separated from his wife and fired from his job (despite the business is run by his brother), now living in a bedsit. He attempted to commit suicide several times, so it's the right profile, but he could be released due to his mental condition.

Casey is freaked out again for having witnessed a boy dead right after he had bumped into the crime scene (he's fathering a boy of the same age). We make acquaintance of the new junior district attorney who takes the place of Philips, just promoted in another courtroom. Thorne doesn't seem to get along with her.
