    Was it a crossing failure? Did the Ped cross against the lights? I'm sorry when anyone gets hit by a vehicle, because humans always lose that contest. I do feel sorry for the train operator though (do they call them conductors anymore?), because he/she had a front-row seat for this, that must be horrible to see it coming and not be able to do anything about it.
