    Seriously Darrell ? With this day and age when alot of people walk around with a phone stuck to their brain ? Oblivion comes at you one way or another.

    When I was young I used to ride a bike to Lodi and had three choices - two of which was and still its illegal - ride the bridge at 99 , ride the tressel or ride through Woodbridge. My parents suggested starting a petition to create a walk bridge across the river. I didn't do it as I didn't have the gumption or know how to . I noticed that that subject has come up again in recent years. Money doesn't equate and yet you can have a liberal viewpoint and just say money doesn't matter. A death is still a death and the logic is - what is that worth? There is a limit to what a perfect world is and how far money will go.
    I am truely sorry for yet another death on that set of tracks . They are hazardous no matter how you look at it. Hope not to see you facing the same circumstance - as a train is very unforgiving. Each one of us is special in our own way . It would be better if we didn't think so though. "It couldn't happen to me".

    I agree with Darrell, autopsy should provide some answers.

    I walk over that trestle about two times per week and see the two memorial crosses that are there. . You can see and hear the train coming long before it gets to where anyone would be walking on the tracks. I cannot imagine how someone could not see or hear the train coming and walk off to safety, unless they were out of their minds.
