    Ouch. Maybe UTA should make it more clear that the tracks are off-limits to pedestrians except at crossings. Or people should pay more attention.

    You people on here need to get a life! and have a heart. I know this man and he is a wonderful dad to 3 young boys and 1 girl. You have no right to judge and say anything about his situation! You don’t know what he is going through or his family. I am praying that he makes a full and fast recovery. Have some compassion. It infuriates me that someone could write such judgmental and mean things.
