Its a shame the bartender at the Paddock let this man get drunk enough to walk out and get hit by a freight train.

Heard that on the scanner last night. Didn't have much detail. Had a friend that lives in the area state she could hear the train slam his brakes. Wasn't for sure what really happened but def hope some actions are taken if the bartender let this gentleman walk out intoxicated without any ride or even someone escorting him home. And usually these small bars usually have the same customers so, I'm sure it wasn't his first night there. Certainly feel sorry his family and friends.

It's not the bartenders job to chase down drunk people leaving the bar. What bar have you ever been to where you were about to leave and the bartender stops you to ask if you have a ride? That's just ridiculous. It's never the intoxicated persons fault, is it? Guy gets so blasted he gets hit by a TRAIN and whose fault is it? THE BARTENDERS? Come on. Seriously.

Welcome to America! "I can't make good decisions on my own so I'll sue someone!" Never working for what you earn, just sucking off the tit of someone else. The bartender isn't the victim's momma - he was just doing his job. If the victim was drunk enough to stumble upon some train tracks and get hit - that's HIS fault. No one else.

sorry but the bartenders are suppose don`t serve people that who in intoxicated to think for themself. so if the guys was drunk when he came in the bartender should have to refuse to serve him and if he got drunk while the bartender should have cut him off. so it is fault for not doing the right thing but not the guys death

He wasn't " stumbling" anywhere. He and the female we're crossing the track to their car.

They should have used the underground stairs to get to the other side. It is against the law to walk across railroad tracks. He should've laid off the alcohol.

Was told by a friend that he was drinking there with his wife, They went to leave and get into there car which they kept parked across the tracks(to avoid being profiled by police for a DUI i assume), They somehow got seperated(he stopped to pee) and were wandering around the area between the bar and their car looking for one another. I was told the man saw the train coming and was standing there giving the old arm pull you do to get trucker's/conductor's to sound there horn, except he was so drunk he didnt realize he was standing to close to the tracks and got hit..
