Default Sometimes the media gets it right! (grade crossing ax)

Click here to see what one reporter found out when he did a story on a train accident that killed two innocent parents of four.

Grade Crossing Accident

Be sure to click on the video link near the right side of the page. Fair disclosure here: I am a photographer for this TV station, but I've been off since Sunday and had nothing to do with this story.

The only thing I noticed was that the video had the same wording as the article?

What is really sad is that it would seem the deceased were passengers in the SUV, neither was driving. Typical that the innocent ones pay with their lives for mistake of another.

The web gurus decide what parts of the story totake and how to display it on the web. It gets real interesting with multiple stories on the same subject.

Nah, I've never met him. As far as I know, he's not on any ofthe internet lists I'm on either. If so, he lurks and doesn't post.

He sounded like the official spokesman for the RFD Railroad Association. It brings to mind what Foxworthy said about people being on tv after a tornado in the South.

Sad actually, from my point of veiw being a culinary student. That he was a Chef getting ready to start up a catering business. It never ceases to amaze that people cant spend two minutes of there life to wait on a train to pass when it could mean the end of there life in the process. I feel sorry for the train crew as well.
