These incident can be more complex than people realize, and it's important to avoid jumping to conclusions until investigations are complete.

One Killed in Train, Pedestrian Accident off Ross Sterling in Houston, TX

I can't help but to recall an incident down in San Antonio where a young woman was hit by a train early in the morning. Months later, investigators found evidence that she was extremely intoxicated following a night out at a local bar, and she wandered away while trying to get home. This tragically led to her somehow falling and passing out on a set of tracks where the incident occurred.

What folks may have had all kinds of assumptions about turned out to possibly be a case of a business illegally over-serving someone to the point they got themselves killed. I'm not saying that happened here, but a proper investigation needs to consider those kinds of possibilities if a grieving family is going to get the answers they deserve.
