NoT HumoR: In Memoriam (updated)

AP reports

My deepest sympathies to the family of Tara Rose McAvoy, 18, who was walking Monday near railroad tracks when she was struck by a Union Pacific train, authorities said.

A witness told Austin television station KTBC the train sounded its horn right up until the accident occurred.

{update. Ms. Tara Rose was DEAFER then a DOOR BELL !} if you didnt understand that!


But, in some parallel universe, perhaps a blind, dumb beauty queen is hit by a nasty deaf beauty queen. Nah. that's too cynical, even for me..

OK... More information dept:
1) According to RR officials, THERE ARE NO VIBRATIONS coming down from the train as it approaches. DONT depend on that!
2) According to some accounts, she was SMS'ings a text message to her parents at the time of the accident. However, it wasn't the CAUSE of the accident.
3) Cause of the accident? She was either ON the tracks, or TOO close to the tracks!
