I suppose his family will sue the RR for negligence.

yeah, have been seeing more and more of these things going to court as civil lawsuits. People don't realize that the train crews are not at fault, it's not like they can just hit the brakes and stop on a dime.
it's just pathetic how sue happy we are as a society. I think the crews should sue the families for undue added stress when situations arrize from this.
people pull you head out of your rear, if you run the crossing just because you are so impatient. It's like playing russian roulette.

in heaven there will be a special place for people who drive around the RR arms
and people that drink and drive
and people who point toy guns at the police
and so on and so on
