This may have been one of the worst written articles EVER! Does it matter where his girlfriend lived? There are so many irrelevant things in this article. Just report the facts LDN.

Terrible.....

If I'm Steve Snyder, I'd be ashamed to see this go to print with my name on top of it. Has the LDN editor been laid off?

Wow! I didn't even look to see who wrote the article. I assumed it was some young pup right out of college. Steve Snyder is a better reporter than this... What happened Steve?

Just like sports and now apparently journalism, everything is getting watered down. There are just too many outlets for news. The standards drop off until articles written like this, are the norm.

Paul was a very good guy, for all you people talking about lebanon the way your doing is rediculous. I think everything in this article is relavant. It leads them to a suspect.

reported by pennlive.com
The death of a Lebanon man hit and killed by a Norfolk-Southern train Saturday has been ruled accidental by the Lebanon County coroner, police said today. Paul Pratt, 28, of Lebanon, was struck by a train at 2:44 a.m. Saturday about 50 yards west of the Fifth Street railroad crossing, police said. Dr. Jeffrey Yocum, county coroner, said the autopsy showed Pratt had a blood alcohol content of 0.305 percent -- almost four times the legal limit for drivers -- and died of multiple blunt force trauma.

0.25 BAC: All mental, physical and sensory functions are severely impaired. Increased risk of asphyxiation from choking on vomit and of seriously injuring yourself by falls or other accidents.

0.30 BAC: STUPOR. You have little comprehension of where you are. You may pass out suddenly and be difficult to awaken.

0.35 BAC: Coma is possible. This is the level of surgical anesthesia.
