My Son just called. Had I heard about the disabled Veterans parade being held at the Horseshoe this afternoon? The Horseshoe is place were events are held. Bull riding, fairs, concerts, etc. The Horseshoe is 2 miles from where I live.
A trailer load of disableled Vet's were being hauled to the Horseshoe. Struck by a train. Two killed that is reported, so far. The mess is still being taken care of at this moment. Not much on the local news, yet.
Oooh gees. I agree with you title here...[expletive], [expletive], [expletive].
DO NOT REGRET GROWING OLDER.
IT'S A PRIVILEGE DENIED TO MANY.
Four are now confirmed dead. No news yet on how many have been injured, taken to the hospital. The sun has set, last vestiages of light has faded from a cloudy sky. Hoping the ten 'o clock news will be able to shed a bit more insight has to how this tragedy happened.
This train crossing has all of the bells and whistles and a guard that drops down. The only thing I've heard is that it was one of the fast moving, non-slowing frieght trains.
Thanks for the news link, coacheswife.

We have a railroad crossing like that in my town...built a bypass and did not take care of it...$$$ talk when common sense should...not enough traffic they said...no foresight...Marcellus Shale traffic and Walmart Traffic now needs to cross these RR tracks. Don't know where to begin listing the accidents that did not need to happen.
Breaks my heart when a veteran survives the conflict only to lose his life to stupid, short-sighted planning at home.
How terrible. Positive thoughts going out to the survivors and the families of all involved.

Math is fun!
This is a terrible event. God bless all.
Amazing how quick the media picks up news. It just made our local newsfeed headlines.
OOoo How awful! Thoughts and prayers for them all.

Brian Williams reported this on our 6:00 nightly news. Tragic loss that could have been avoided. So sorry for all the families.
My DH's youngest son and our 16 yr old step granddaughter and another teen were killed by a train years ago. No crossing arms there. It is something no family should have to go through.
My condolences to the whole town.
The son and daughter in law of a friend of a friend of MY friend were on the float, he was ok but she had a back injury and concussion! They came down from Washington state to be in the parade.
I'm not psycho.....I just like psychotic things.
