    Unless you remain hyper-aware, you should NEVER walk alongside any train tracks. That's just common-sense. Crossing them illegally is probably less dangerous, but you should be extra careful too. Please do not blame the train or the train crew on this death.

    That is very sad. But, what was he doing walking on the tracks? I just don't understand how people get hit by trains...
