In reference to your article and photos about the Sept. 19 fatality in the Port of Tacoma, I’d like to clear up an inaccurate photo caption: “Man killed when train hits car in Tacoma.” Unfortunately, the man struck the train (as the article itself makes clear).
Too often, the blame gets assigned to railroad workers when the public blatantly ignores laws at railroad crossings. I work for Tacoma Rail, and the number of times per day the general public chooses to ignore signs and flashing lights is quite surprising.
Ultimately, it’s family members who lose out when their loved one makes poor decisions at railroad crossings. This is both very sad and quite unnecessary.
Please be mindful, people: Trains always win.
