It really is hard to feel sorry for this person “if” they tried to beat the train by running across the tracks at the last second, like one does by going around the crossing gates when they are down blocking cars from an oncoming train.

This fool will probably sue Amtrak because of his outright stupidity, and they will pay to get it off the books.

Stupidity and ignorance should NOT be rewarded because it self perpetuates itself if it does.
