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.
