A speeding train, an SUV,
A tragedy come true;
The warning arm came down but still
The car continued through.

The driver lost her life as did
Commuters on the train.
The reasons why it happened
Experts want to ascertain.

The passengers who passed away
All sat up in the front,
For when the crash occurred
The leading car absorbed the brunt.

Today the trains were back on track
And fully occupied
Except the first compartments, which
Had nobody inside.

I was just watching this tragic accident on the news. I was wondering if anyone would want to ride up front. Thanks for answering my question and for imortalising the people who died with your poem. Sad but very well done Ilene.
