TROUBLED YOUNG LADIES. The Milwaukee County medical examiner rules that two Oak Creek High School students committed suicide by walking in front of a train last November. Family members dispute the ruling. The article reports both girls had lives troubled in part by circumstances not of their making. The article also reports that the train's engineer did not return calls. Nor should he be expected to. Locomotive crews generally get to walk away from grade crossing accidents and collisions with pedestrians, whether those are on the tracks by mistake or by design. The crews don't get to walk away from the nightmares.
