That train should have de-escalated the situation by going around the pedestrian. This situation was completely preventable….

All that aside, I pray for the crew of that train who have to live with that person’s stupid decision…

Was this woman waking on the tracks and didn’t hear the train? What happened?

All well and good. But why was she on the tracks? And HOW could she not know A TRAIN was approaching? Those things aren’t exactly silent. Here’s a thought…stay OFF the damned tracks! That train did not go rogue and seek her out

There could be many different factors. She could be deaf, wearing headphones or even mental issues. Perhaps simply crossing the tracts to get to the waterfront. Bottom line here is someone has lost life. Sorry for your loss Caitlin. May she rest well.

…or perhaps she tripped and fell hitting her head.

Too bad for her. However, anyone with an ounce of common sense can avoid being hit by a train, unless it’s a deliberate act. Sad, but true. My sympathy lies with the train operator, however. Deaf? Open your eyes! Headphones? Darwin award. Mental issues? Poor train operator

Linda was my dear friend and neighbor. I’ve never met a person with a bigger, kinder, giving heart than her. Linda loved to collect berries by the train tracks. She’d make pies, desserts, what have you, and give them to her friends and neighbors. The day that this happened, Linda did her last, kindest act. She tried to save her little dog and sidekick, Bo. Giving her life to save another is part of who she was. She always believed in the best of everyone and I know it would hurt her heart to make the train driver or anyone else feel bad about her passing. Linda was an amazing gal and deserves only the best thoughts concerning her passing.
