It was about 130 or so and the train went crazy... life flight landed at the high school...but we didn't see him get loaded in the helicopter ...but he could have. id say he's in bad condition. The train went crazy so I am wondering if it was on purpose?? Just wondering who and if it was on purpose. I feel bad for the train conductor :(

I hate that so much for all involved. I know what you mean about the train conductor. Even though it is not their fault, they struggle with the pain of hitting someone for a lifetime. If there is anything the public can do, please let us know!

Most likely meant that when the train was put into emergency (to stop it), the brakes were squealing very loudly.

Health Net did land but the person was taken in the ambulance to TV hospital. Most likely to be pronounced dead.. He was too bad to be flown. Not sure why they called for the helicopter to start with.. Prayers for those involved. I just wonder if this wasn't another suicide. It's so sad... They estimated the guy to be in his 20s.

I'm sure your right about pronouncing him.. prolly callower for.health net and he dies before they arrived. After he was loaded they drove ambulance over to the high school talked to them for a few and then transported the Guy no sirens... so def he died but I do wonder bout suicide... did they ever decide that the Jason ball was a suicide??

I wondered if it was suicide as well. Just really sad. I mean it would be hard for it to be an accident. One doesn't normally miss hearing a train... Unless you're really really drunk and it was pretty early in the day to hopefully be that drunk.

It has been confirmed by FB that he did not survive by a family member. I see people walking those same tracks daily. In my opinion, you would feel the train coming because the rails and the wood move up and down and you would be able to feel the vibrations. This is so terribly sad that another young life has been lost.
