  1. The Jennifer English in the Route 80 accident was 24 in 2005 and the Jennifer English who was hit today was 29. Tragic. My heart goes out to her family. The parents must be devastated. Tomorrrow is the 5th anniversary of the car wreck. Eerie.

  2. This is very sad. I don’t think the date is a coincidence. In the story the engineer said she was standing on the tracks and although he sounded the horm several times she didnt move. RIP, and my thoughts are with her family.

  3. This is just painfully sad.
    My thoughts go to the family and to the engineer driving the train.
