The victims died instantly early Thursday when the stolen SUV they were in slammed into a parked train.
It happened at a crossing at Archer Road and Fleming around 3:30 a.m
The 4 teenagers killed in this horrible accident were 14, 14, 13 and 12. Three of them were females.
What in the world were two 14 year old girls and one 12 year old girl doing out at 3:30 in the morning riding around in a stolen SUV??? Where were the parents of these children? One of them had snuck out, but what about the other 3?
The community, and in particular some of the parents of those killed, are blaming the railroad company for having an unlit railroad crossing, but the fact of the matter is, these kids were out when they shouldn't have been, doing things they shouldn't have been doing.
What a stupid, senseless tragedy. I for one would favor the death penalty for the driver, if he survives.
