DisapproveYea, I noticed 'The Second Coming', also.
Always thought the second time around was the charm and maybe they didn't live...kind of like the New York Mercedes-Train Test, today.

A tragic and no doubt preventable accident. Of course the media is in their: Who will be the first to guess what really happened? Contest. The Mercedes driver won't be able to tell their version. If she only had a Subaru...

What the hell was she doing in between two closed gates, that should of gave her a clue that a train was coming. Don't go back in the car/SUV. Hint hint if the gates are coming down, if you're in the car/SUV behind them, stop! If you're on the tracks (to quote commander Kruge) "Get outta there!"

That's my train line - Metro North Harlem line. I know exactly where that happened.

Maybe they should rethink grade crossings, specifically the "close down all routes of evading" crossing gates! This is so needlessly sad!

Here, the designers were thinking "oh we don't want anybody evading the crossing gates" when they should be thinking "wait what if somebody gets trapped by them?"

Is that coming out of Penn heading north right along side the Hudson, right as soon as ou get out of The City? If so, that was my weekly route (I was an 'Amtrak regular') for the Albany/Rensselaer-Manhattan/Long Island years...if so, I almost bet I know where it happened.

OuchI wanna see them modify this commercial just a wee bit: add 10 more seconds and one more scenario showing a totally trashed Subaru where the announcer points out, "They WOULD have lived if they simply bought a model year newer..."

Metro North is out of Grand Central. The Hudson line ran up the river going to Poughkeepsie - lovely, lovely ride. The New Haven line went to CT, Greenwich, Stamford etc. The Harlem line went up through White Plains to Brewster, and then they added to the line including Wassaic and points a little further north.

I read an interesting comment in my local paper from a retired fireman. He was saying that those gates CAN be crashed through if need be. The damage to your car would be nothing compared to saving your life. If those gates came down, FLOOR IT and get the hell out of there, gates be damned.

I sort of wonder if this was premeditated; was she suicidal. Who in their right mind woudn't realize the value of life over materialistic gains? If she had time to get out of the car, why didn't she?
