CSX - i highly doubt the troll posting under various names is genuinely related to the young man tragically killed. I wouldnt bother responding to it, it just gets a kick out of getting a rise out of people on the net. Stay safe out there.

I was on this train and it appeared that the kids were playing chicken and one of them lost. The conductors were terribly upset, although they said it happens more than you might think. The engineer had no chance to stop. What a terrible phone call for those parents - a 14 year old kid. It's such a waste. And the other boys who made it across have to live with this the rest of their lives, too. There's just nothing good to be said when something like this happens.
Unless you're plastic girl,there's no way you seen the kids ,but the train engineer did'nt,so ouit lying,thy shall not lie,its a commandment!

Shame really that the morons on the board are defending the dead for their moronic actions.

I wonder if the parents will use the funds they receive from the railroad to teach others about the dangers of trespassing on railroad property?

Somehow I doubt it.

Although I should not feed this troll, I just can't help myself. To try and read the comments this person writes, makes me laugh due to the fact they are a complete illiterate. After reading all the posts, I think they have a split personality because the writing on 3 different posts are worded alike.

Back to the story, the teenager killed was trying to cross the tracks when the gates were down. There were witnesses that told the police that the gates were down and the red lights were flashing when they tried to cross the tracks ahead of the train.

Moral of the story, when train gates are down and red lights are flashing, you don't cross the tracks. He did and unfortunately paid the ultimate price.
