Coincidence Of The Week (2)

Lightning may not strike twice but the Lynx trains on the Charlotte Area Transit System certainly do.

Tragically, Baltazar Tiquiram Us was killed when his pickup truck was struck by a train at a railway crossing in Charlotte. His brothers, Pablo and Chilambalam, visited the scene of the accident a week later to pay tribute to their brother. As they were walking north down the southbound tracks at around 5.10am, they too were struck by a train at the same spot. Although the driver brought the train to a halt, both brothers were declared dead at the scene.

An astonishing coincidence that is scarcely believable.
