First thought was, OMG how awful. Second thought, who in the world  jogs on train tracks without looking for the train? This could have been avoided. What a tragic waste of life. How sad.

About estherlou

My husband and I married in 1970. I am the mother of 2 and grandmother to 5. I am a retired wedding cake decorator. I like watching Netflix on the Wii. I am catching up on all of the old tv shows I missed when they were on prime time! Right now though, I am reading and writing blogs, watching tv, making jewelry and rosaries, selling in my Etsy store and playing solitaire. I am home bound and add in my physical therapy exercises to my daily routine. I will blog about my progress or anything that catches my attention at that moment. See you around and thanks for stopping by!

    Amtrak kills approximately one hundred pedestrian and vehicle-borne trespassers annually. Many of the pedestrians have earphones on, and many of them are out jogging or walking. A smaller number are using the tracks as a shortcut, and have grown blase to the threat. It amazes me how people can be so cavalier about something so large, so fast, and so lethal as a train.
