I might as well apologize right now, We are going to hear that the person of this story was a brilliant son and a great father. That it was the train’s fault. But let’s face facts, you got to be (prior to your sudden death) deaf as a stone not to hear a train coming. Unless you have a blood alcohol level of 0.4% you can not help feel the thunder of 274,400 lb of Locomotive. I have no problem with a fellow or gal wanting to take their own life for some self-perceived impossible impasse in their life, just don’t do it where some train crew has to have it on their conscience for the rest of their lives.

It is unknown what the male was doing prior to being struck. The San Bernardino Sheriff Department, Los Angeles Sheriff Department as well as Metrolink is investigating the incident.
Being hit by a train is a MESSY proposition. Yeah it is quick but it is not they way to leave this world. You are spread down the tracks for hundreds of feet. What these poor delusional folks need to understand is there are guys and gals in those locomotive cabs. They are the ones that have to live with the fact that your silly ass goes out and stands in front of a moving train, think about the guys on the train. Think how they must live with your death. It is just not right.
