PumaLover posted a topic in Wide World of SnarkI might dox myself a little bit but this happened last night in the city that I'm from. Fresno, California is a large city in Central California and there are a lot of pedestrian/train accidents yearly. This little girl was killed last night after her mother prompted her to crawl under the train to get to the bus stop so they wouldn't miss their bus. The train suddenly started to go and it killed her. The mother had reportedly done this multiple times before. There are trains that run through neighborhoods and across major streets and near bus stops in Fresno. Sadly this is not a rare case around here. When my adopted daughter first came to live with us, a lot of her stories started out, "and we were playing on the train tracks." Sadly it's just an everyday thing for a lot of underprivileged children who live in poorer areas. https://abc30.com/nothing-could-prepare-me-for-what-ive-seen-witness-recalls-seeing-8-year-old-get-hit-by-train/4919480/
An Amtrak train, on its first journey from Seattle to Portland, has derailed onto the I-5 highway in Pierce County, WA, near Tacoma. There has been a number of fatalities, around six confirmed so far although this will probably rise. Fatalities are all train passengers, no motorist fatalities mentioned yet. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-42401707
