I can't help thinking how awful it is for the train driver. One of the boys in my sisters class had a motorbike. He took the bend out of the estate too wide and ran into the front of the once an hour bus. He was hospitalised for three months and then went home to recuperate. His bike wasn't really damaged until his father took a sledgehammer to it. The bus driver didn't work for six months (my father knew him), and wouldn't do that run afterwards. The boy didn't die, but the bus driver had Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. It must be much harder for a train driver when someone dies in front of them.
