Hypothetically if we ruled out suicide or being asleep or passed out from over intoxication of w/e, what is left? I can’t not point a finger at malicious or foul play. If I was to run with such a theory I would not dismiss the possibility of the two of them accidently seeing something or coming up on a situation they were not supposed to. If this is not the case, then I wonder who may have had an ulterior motive. I believe a 3rd party was involved either directly or indirectly.
Just to clarify, this was not suicide, period. I'm not going to argue why.
Further more, the two were laying on the tracks, not standing. The location of the incident is at a straight line in the track. You can see about a 1/4 mile in each direction. The speed of a cargo train averages somewhere around 25mph with no train traveling more than 40mph (according to not very credible internet sources). So let's say that hypothetically, the train was traveling at 50mph it would take 18seconds to travel 1/4 mile. That would give these two individuals at the minimum 15 seconds to move out of the way. Yes, very strange indeed. (65mph people?? have you ever actually seen a cargo train moving anywhwere near that fast?? Be serious)
As to someone pointing out the possibility of being "high", I take it you have never done drugs becuase there is no effect that would inhibit your ability to hear or feel a train to this extent.
The horn being activated is recorded in the train's computer in addition to video footage. The police know far more than we do at this point. Let's please be respectful of the families and not speculate. I pray for the families suffering from lost loved ones.
Both of you should be ashamed of yourself. There are friends and family still trying to find out details of a horrible accident and you both are quick to judge their "negligence" and the negative impact on the "RR company." Shame on you for being so inconsiderate you pigs.
