Commentary on Austin CapMetro Train Accident

Clearly there's still a lot of work to do here before anyone can say they know what happened. Until more details are discovered it's anyone's guess how the pedestrian ended up in the train's path. I hope police and/or CapMetro investigators can make more sense of what happened--not just to better explain it to the public, but also to get answers for the victim's loved ones. In the meantime it's best not to speculate from the sidelines, but instead focus on how to help a grieving family recover from a terrible loss.
