    So sad. Especially the fear the family has of CV”S reprisals. May Hashem protect and comfort them.

    I’m so sorry for the family and community.
    My grandfather A”H was killed in exactly the same kind of accident 80 years ago, leaving 3 young children. My mother A”H spent a fair amount of energy trying to upgrade car/train crossings wherever she saw faults in the system. One would think the kinks would be worked out by now. We need Moshiach right away.

    The Metro-North has a history of collisions and has been found in many studies in the past to be lax on safety standards (and the studies then covered up), but no one has done anything to regulate or improve anything. And it probably will continue this way.

    How much longer till this Golus ends?
    Enough pain, suffering and loss!
    But please explain – what is the reason for the police blockades around her home and the fear the family has now? Reprisals?
    MOSHIACH NOW!!!

    To keep the media away. To keep grievances of the 5 innocent victims away. To keep oglers away.
    May all the mourners be comforted.

    This has nothing to do with metro north, the train was going 59 miles, it was impossible for the train to stop. and we would never know why the women was in the cross road., So sad she was so young, May her family be comforted

    SO SAD!!!

    It’s not just about the speed. The security barriers could easily have been faulty, the officials admitted it. There are a number of other possibilities. Someone said that if they had implemented the previously suggested safety standards it may have helped in this case. The investigation hasn’t even begun, why are you so quick to absolve the train when the line has has been proven negligent?
