  • notice
  • investigation


Every railroad, whenever an accident attended by bodily injury or loss of human life occurs in this state on its line of road or on its ground or in its yards, shall give immediate written notice thereof to the public utilities commission. In the event of any such accident, the commission, if it deems the public interest to require it, shall cause a suitable investigation to be made forthwith and shall give written notice thereof to the person and railroad primarily interested.


The expense of such investigation shall be certified by a majority of the commission and shall be audited and paid by the state in the same manner as other expenses are audited and paid. The commission is empowered to make and enforce such rules as, in its judgment, will tend to prevent accidents in the operation of the railroads of this state.
