Am I the only one wondering how a 15 year old ended up on the tracks with the train coming?

My FIL used to run this route and that is a dangerous crossing, but so is every RR crossing. Folks heed my warning, you need to really talk to your kids about RR crossings I don't care how old or young they are. You should never let them play near, or cross them without adult supervision. My father has been an engineer with the RR for over 25 years and has explained this to me many many times, and always get a refresher when he hits someone.

The biggest mistake people make when it comes to crossing RR tracks is waiting for the train to pass then run accross. In this situation there was more then two tracks and the other train blocked the view of the next train comming.

Here is a REAL LIFE EXAMPLE of what happens when you ignore the horns and the signals. This video is NOT WORK SAFE, there is no blood however. I would highly recommend showing it your teenage children. It will scare them straight.

Ive gotten a more clear story,the metra to the left ,was stopped.the metra to the rite the kid didnt see,50-70mph. you would think trains would at least slow down thru ther,especially on the day a tragedy occured 11yrs before.
