    I thought the same thing.

    Was he dragged by the train from another town and finally killed in Durham?

    Strange headline - so a man that was hit by a train was killed in Durham?? Was it later, and where was he killed??

    Sometimes I wonder what journalism students are really taught??

    Yes, I read the article and saw what happened, but you wouldn't know it by just the headline!!
