    WRAL..........We have gone to other sources to inquire about this story that you were so quick to report on Sunday night. Other news sources have given the information that you aren't able to obtain....you can delete this story now because it is useless on your site. I will not be back to your site or live news again.

    I was on this train when this happened, the jump in front of the train and the driver never had a chance to stop, we were stuck in lemon springs for 3 hours....I feel sorry for the 24yr man that felt that he need to take his on life.. and for the driver and the workers that will always have this with them because they had to go look for him

    WRAL.....Has there really been no updates since last night when you first reported or is it because the accident didn't happen in wake county?

    at these particular cross stops it would be easy to get hit by a train. Drive thru lemon springs n then voice ur opinion

    pamelaworley1969.....It's pretty clear what happened
    . A train hit a man at the intersection of Joe Matthews and Greenwood roads. And I only had to read this poorly written article to know that.

    Only two ways you get hit by a train. You're either intoxicated or deaf. You shouldn't be on train tracks in either case. No pedestrian has ever 'accidently' been hit by a train. It was ALWAYS preventable.
