  57. Eileen Pavia Eileen Pavia says:

    I know someone who witnessed the whole thing nd he said she intentionally walked on the tracks nd closed her eyes. Suicide!

  59. I live right infront of rainbow glen and many who witnessed it said she was at the bus stop, but went to the liquor to get something. When she came out she saw the bus getting to the bus stop so she ran. She saw the train, but did not want to miss the bus. If she was a was teen then she was most likely going to Golden Valley HS since they enter later on Fridays. Santa Clarita isn’t the same anymore. Its not as safe is it used to claim. Very sad, but accidents happens. Its a cruel part of life.

  60. Larry, this is down the street from my housing community.

  61. Larry Hayes Larry Hayes says:

    People need to stay off the tracks that’s what happens

  66. Maria Quiles Maria Quiles says:
