“They Were Imprudent”

Um, yeah, that’s one way to put it

(CNN) — At least 12 people were killed and several others injured when they were run over by a train in a town south of Barcelona, Spain, a spokesman for Catalonia Emergency Center said Thursday.

At least 14 more were hurt, and three remained in critical condition, the spokesman said.

The accident occurred Wednesday between 11:30 p.m. and midnight local time as a group tried to cross the tracks after getting off a local train that had stopped at the town of Castelldefels, authorities said.

Just horrible. Horrific.

And completely avoidable.

    I will NEVER understand why anyone would be near the tracks of an oncoming train. NEVER. The train ALWAYS, ALWAYS wins.
