A father and his 3-year-old son were enjoying the day walking near some train tracks. In an instant, everything changed. The young boy was hit by a freight train and killed, according to the Missoulian.
This situation is similar to an accident in Westmoreland County, Pittsburgh which involved a 15-year-old boy who was riding his bike along some train tracks and was hit by a train and died, according to kdka.com.
As a father with young children, these types of train accidents are so sad to hear. I've represented people seriously injured in train accidents so I understand the type of devastation they can inflict in an accident.
Any parent who loses a child feels a pain that's virtually indescribable.
