GonadtheBarbarian: How the fark does something like this even happen?
Earpj: Gads.I shudder to imagine the scene.
Popcorn Johnny: Why didn't they just jump off the float and run out of the way?
Psylent1: They were probably Tebowing.Don't they listen to South Park, memes kill.
INTERTRON: Popcorn Johnny: Why didn't they just jump off the float and run out of the way?Sadly, not all veterans can walk easily. Or at all.
TomD9938: GonadtheBarbarian: How the fark does something like this even happen?I'm just hoping that traffic didnt back up and the driver went over the tracks anyway, only to have to stop half way over, train-horn blaring and not a damn thing he can do about what's going to happen next.Somehow that'd be worse than him simply trying to beat the train over the crossing.
Emposter: A preliminary investigation indicates the crossing gate and lights were working at the time,So the truck ignored the lights and bell and went through the lowered gate? Who does that?
puffy999: It's like traaaaaaaiiiiiin.... at a veteran's parade.
bigbadideasinaction: The parade was to end at a "Hunt for Heroes" banquet honoring the veterans.Looks like the train driver bagged four early, that's all.
wildsnowllama: So our treatment of veterans is on track.
laterthanyou: The vast majority of veterans that are being honored are young kids from Iraq and Afghanistan missing limbs or with severe burns.
