High school is an interesting time for teenagers. With all the ups and downs of being a teenager, most everyone can remember that one friend that they did everything with. Some high school friends remain close throughout life, while others drift apart, left only with fond memories. Unfortunately for one teenager, her memories of the best friend she met at a North Carolina high school will most likely be tinged with the desolation of her tragic death. While the community and her family still reel with the news of the girl's death, her family could consider filing a wrongful death case against the alleged culprit in the accident.

For the most part, trains in North Carolina do not pose a significant threat to the communities they trundle through. As long as cars and pedestrians obey safety signals, railway tracks usually remain a relatively benign part of the landscape.
