Do you think the parents will miss the young lad once they are paid handsomely by the RR for the ignorance of their child's actions?

Do you think the parents will even think about the fact that their child caused the engineer and conductor of the train to have this incident engrained into their heads for the rest of their lives?

I doubt it.

Enjoy your settlement and tip your wait staff.

Not to mention the inquisition that these two will now have to suffer through, as the NTSB does its investigation, and assigns blame for this incident.
Drug tests, sworn and written staements, hearings, and other life altering and career ending changes to these two, whose only mistake it seems is that a dumb kid was taking a shortcut to school.

This is sad and unfortunate for all parties concern. Children do dumb things. That's a part of childhood.
My heart goes out to the parents and family that have lost their child. Regardless as to what the reason for death is, it doesn't ease the pain any less.

To assume the parents will request a settlement is presumptuous.

The news media nor the children saw anything. What the media has not stated is that he was found on the tracks by a friend as they were walking to school. So I have my doubts that the conductor nor engineer has the actual accident engraved in their head. One can only imagine this horrific accident.
His parents have the horrible image of their son being slaughtered by the train engraved in their minds forever. Knowing that their son is gone forever.

Do not mistaken my views. I have empathy for both the conductor and engineer. They are effected by this horrific accident as well. Yes, they will be badgered and interrogated as the investigation proceeds. However if they don't do drugs than the drug test is the least of their concern.

Once again the media has proven their lack of facts, and citizens have proved their lack of intelligence.
There is always someone, lurking and gossiping misinformation.


I wish only the best for both the conductor and engineer concerning their careers.

So, the answer to your question...Yes regardless as to what the outcome is, this family will miss their child.

What a stupid question to ask.

Please stop this and think at least of the parents...you seem to be saying that the parents delibrately sent this kid out for this...put yourself in their places: how would you feel if this was your child? would you rather people say those things about your dead child...he was a child and kids do things...I am sure you've done something dumb in your lifetime but just lucky that your life was not ended with it. Think about this: TOMORROW IS NOT PROMISED TO NO ONE...The next second could be your last breath...
think all that you want to think but please be more respectful to the dead.

Their post only reflects who they are. Pretty much in a nut shell..Stuck on Stupid. I can't even give them the benefit of being ignorant.

Karma has it's way of coming back.

There is not any amount of money that will replace their baby.

The posters lack attention,therefore have the need to seek for it on this forum.

Sad isn't it?

prince was one of my friends when i was living in cherry branch, the neighborhood townhouses we use to live in, and we had our beef but we were always cool, he was a good athlete, and it just hurts to hear about this on myspace.. my ex girlfriend was there when it happened, and she was the onlyone out of the other kids to see his face after the train hit him. i had to call her yesteday, she was shockd about me calling but i talkd to her about it, they were walking home from school, i use to walk those tracks when i missed my bus too. he was an eighth grader. he was going places too. the entire neighborhood will NEVER be the same now..

It's doubtless the ones who first think of the money angle in a tragic event as this would be the first ones to heartlessly sue for millions.

The news story is devoid of enough information to really comment. Only the basic facts are provided. My heart goes out to Prince's family and friends and to the railroad crew. I appreciate keon's input. Sounds like Prince was a good person who would have had a great life.

I was the engineer on the train, and Yes, we saw everything. It's dumb ass people like you who make stupid comments like you did that make other people want to find you and beat the shit out of you. I saw the last look on that boys face... His name was Prince Trye, he was 14 years old and I had the pleasure of "Finding" him on the tracks after his "Friends" left him for dead.

They wont get a dime. I was there when it happened, he boy was trespassing, ergo his family has no lawsuit, if they go to court the railroad has a whole department of attorneys just waiting. I feel bad for him and for his parents, I have children his age, god forbid it would be one of mine, but again if it were I wouldn't expect anything from the railroad, it want their fault he was breaking the law.

Idiot!!!! I did not say that the engineer did not see it. READ!!!!!!!!!! Unless you were the media than it doesn't apply to you.

If you feel you need to find me.by all means began your search. You'll be sadly disappointed. Your vial threats do not intimated me.

READ..the post did not apply to the engineer!!!!!!!!!!

I have my doubts........If you feel like you need to correct the comment than state it in a presentable manner.

I have my doubts means..I do THINK they saw it. Think is the key word. If you need to clarify it than do in an intelligent manner.

I am sure the image is set in your mind forever. I am sorry you had to experience this unfortunate mishaps. Its sad and devasting to all involved.
No one is blaming the conductor or engineer. Please try not to take your anger out on those that post there opinions on here. It's an open forum.
Should you have something to contribute to the forum than do so in an informative fashion. Attacking isn't going to help your situation,nor will it harm me.

I have been on the railroad 39 years now. I hope to be making my last trip in several months. During my career, I have had the misfortune of hitting two vehicles and killing one trespasser. For those who have never sat in a locomotive cab, you have no clue, no idea, no nothing of what it is like to lock eyes with someone who is about to die. I still have nightmares about a young mother that was killed after she drove around lowered gates with a car load of kids. These incidents are miserable not only for the train crew but for the family that lost a member. As for the law suits and payments, too many people have great intentions until solicited by ambulance chasing lawyers. The promise of easy and free money plus "sending a message" to the company are usually too hard to resist. I only wish that those who trespass or want to drive through activated crossing warnings would please think twice. I sure as heck do not want to meet you by accident.

Unfortunately, it doesn't matter that it wasn't the railroads fault. If a lawsuit is forthcoming, the railroad's attorneys will convince them that it is cheaper for them to settle out of court. Remember, some stupid lady burned her dumb self with coffee from McDonalds and parlayed that into quite a windfall of cash. Its the American way.

all you people out their who say that he is dumb is wrong. Prince used to go to my school and every day i saw him he was really nice and had a chilled laid back personality.It was never about the freakin money why would a parent tell a child to go get killed for money. He lived in a very nice part of town so money is definetly not the issue. the day that he died our school was filled with grief even people that didnt know him cried for him i know i cried myself to sleep the day i found out. All you people that said thats what he gets you all are probably just some coldhearted evil bastards because god forbid if it were your child then you know it would matter to you. on the other hand everyone who does care and feel sorry then may god bless you all and thank you for the blessings and support through this tragic event.
