I can tell how you get hit by a train. When there is no crossing gates...and the light's are not working and you can't see down the track's until your pretty much on them. Now ask my how i know this cause i was the lucky one that lived through being hit by a train. Now say what you must about me cause i could care less but i think there should be gates at all crossing's

Wasnt at a crossing, was behind her house. Maybe she had a lot on her mind when she was messing with it and didnt hear it?? Maybe she coudlnt hear well to begin with? Who cars, she was part of Uptons history, as it is, so lets let her r.i.p.
