When a Berkeley death resulted from a train collision in November, the Clog deemed it an unfortunate one time accident.

The train accident that took place in mid-November killed a man named Scott Slaughter.Interesting indeed.Woman fatally struck by Amtrak train in Berkeley[Contra Costa Times]Railroad Points to City After Fatal Accident [Daily Cal]
