Commentary on Timothy Duvall Train Accident in Cave City
Something that stood out to me here was reports saying that the victim "did not see" the train. That may sound pretty obvious, considering it's usually obvious when there's a train approaching a crossing. But the reality is the victim isn't here to tell his side of the story. So who's taking the steps to let the evidence speak for itself? For all we know, there were defective crossing guards or obstructions to visibility the victim had no control over. Likely or not, if something unusual led to this man's death, doesn't his family deserve some answers?
