Very sad. Either a suicide or someone was trespassing in order to get where they were going quicker. My condolences to the family.

Investigators say it happened east of the Appleby Station, near Burloak Drive and Harvester Road at about 7:45 a.m.

no person animal or vehicle wins in a battle against a train ever. I used to walk the tracks years ago as a kid up north as a means of travel along an open area but was no such thing as walkmans, earbuds or cellphones back then. You could hear a train approaching. Tracks click, birds scatter and the horn is unmistakable. This is another unfortunate situation.
