That's so stupid it's unbelievable, suppose you had been bombing down that lane at 80, chances are he wouldn't be running off and laughing with his dumb pals!
I hope you weren't too shaken up by it.
These fools (the types that also think its fun to dodge trains) have no idea of the utter devistation they leave behind. I was reading a while back about a train driver who committed suicide several months after he struck and killed some teenager who was playing chicken on the lines. He blamed himself and in the end took his own life.
When I was in my teens my next door neighbour - and a good friend of mine - hung himself from the stairs of his home after an argument with his girlfriend. Apparently it was quite likely that he was doing it as a cry for attention as he was expecting his mother to arrive home any time however she was delayed at work, so when she did arrive she found him dead. I was at home at the time and still remember the screams when she walked through the door.
Boy this thread took a dark turn quickly.
If he hadn't been wearing black it wouldn't of been so close. I'm more shaken up by the fact two lives could of been ruined tonight by an act of stupidity. (I'm not sure stupidity is the right word).
The correct word wouldn't last here for two seconds, stupidity will have to do.
