No but he sure screwed up the day of tens of thousands of commuters by either parking on the track or driving around the crossing gate in an attempt to beat the train. It couldn't have possibly happened at a worse time The last I heard they are still not sure if it was a suicide or an accident.

Tens of thousands? It was 18,000. Someone is dead and you are concerned because it was a bad time for YOU??? Some people are so f-ing clueless...and heartless....

Turns out witnesses said this clown drove right around the gates which were down along with bells ringing, lights flashing, train's horn blasting. No one to blame but himself for what happened! Individual responsibility is a thing of the past in the society and you can bet some ambuilance chasing scumbag lawyer has already contacted the next of kin. Let's blame it on that bad old train!

What do you mean this happens to all of us? I have never driven around downed crossing gates at railroad tracks in my life. One of the reasons is I have kids too and don't want to leave them without a father. His guy was stupid, he was irresponsible and he was breaking laws. Save your bleeding heart stuff for someone who gives a rat's ass! You weren't out there so just shut your f---ing trap!

I knew Wayne. I didn't know he had eleven kids and was a grandpa. Every time I saw him he was at Bay Meadows betting on every race he could. I think he would have bet on a cockroach race!!! He never seemed like the type of guy that would end his life.My Thoughts and prayers are with his family.RIP I will miss you, your smile and your laughter...

Hmmm....well it doesn't exactly sound like he was a rocket scientist...and it sounds like he lost that final race. Good thing he didn't bet on that one!
