If there's any story that defines "not news," it's an LIRR train running someone over "striking an unauthorized person on the tracks." It happens more often than you'd like to think and it's usually not an accident.

I only have one question.

Will this affect Poppler shipments?

I really don't want to see the video of a train being run on Lirr...

The LIRR doesn't hit people. They just have trains delayed because of "an earlier police action involving a person with a medical condition and debris on the tracks"

MTA Police determined that Huysman was struck mid-train, so the train engineer was not aware that the train had hit anyone, according to the spokesman.

The victim was struck by the 5:12 a.m. train from Oyster Bay to Penn Station


Ok the guy walked into the the train (not hit, walked into) at the mid section at about 5am in the morning. I can't help but feel that alcohol was in someway involved.

what's the deal with that?
we have the same problem out here, everyone from hobos to housewives has to get hit by the commuter trains.

I guess freight trains just don't cut it anymore.

This.

I knew a kid who was run over by the LIRR on the trestle over Little Neck Bay. "Senior Cut Day" at JHS 158, way back in 1981. He reached down to grab his buddy when he touched the third rail, and then was subsequently run over by the train. He was somewhat of a bully, while I don't feel he deserved to die I sure as hell didn't feel bad about what happened to him either. Took weeks for his buddy to return to school. Just another day for Darwin.

One of those frequent fatalities so often recorded in the Times, happened on Saturday afternoon at the Farmingdale station of the Long Island Railroad, by which an item - the life of an aged man- was instantly swept from the sum of human endurance.

Get the pdf here (scroll down to the above sentence, the first page is unrelated). The writing is amazing compared to the shiat we read today.

They are sneaky little buggers. It is virtually impossible to tell where they may be coming from so they tend to jump out of nowhere.

I was on a train that killed a guy only a few months ago. Suicide, so I didn't feel bad for the prick, he made thousands of people late that day and that's time we'll never get back. About two weeks ago the train line by my house killed a drunk guy walking home along the tracks with headphones on. I kind of feel bad for him...he didn't mean to die (the engineer reported seeing him try to jump out of the way...he cleared the engine but one of teh passenger cards clipped him).

At Forest Hills, Kew Gardens and St. Albans the doors open on the first four cars only. Please move to the front of the train if you're disembarking at Forest Hills, Kew Gardens or St. Albans stations.

I never liked the Long Island Failroad and I'm glad I don't have to ride it anymore.

Although the Port Washington Line is scenic and usually on time (probably because they don't go through Jamaica). If you're there at peak, everybody's either Korean or Iranian.

I must disagree. While the writing you are referring to is unarguably more flowery, and does use a number of words that today are considered somewhat archaic, and, perhaps, learned, it is still the same load of crap we get from our current news sources; that is, it is sensationalistic, overdone, and editorialistic. It just looks fancier to you because it is so different.
