Teen Dies From Injuries, Car Hit By Train

A Central Kentucky teenager, who drove into the path of a train, has died.

18-Year old Bobbey Rose was crossing the tracks along Briar Hill Road in Fayette County on Saturday, when the train slammed into his truck.
There's no word yet on if the lights were flashing at that crossing when he was hit.

Rose, who was from Bourbon County, was taken to U.K. Hospital for treatment. He died from his injuries around five Monday morning.

    Obviously you have too much time since you keep coming back here to argue. Nuff said!

    (edited)...thanks...you people are so vicious that you have no need to be here talking about a great life that was lived by this young man. You have WAY too much time to get on here to argue to people.

    I will make this point; if you want a memorial you go to legacy.com. If you want to leave a comment, you come here. Everybody is entitled to their opinion. Nobody has any right to tell anyone that they can't say what they want.

    I work at Bluegrass Station and I'm sorry to say that those lights work every single time a train comes by. When I leave for home each day, invariably, a train is always coming by and the lights never fail and the train blows its horn so loud it's annoying.

    Questions...whoever you are, cause your too ashamed to say who you are...yet AGAIN. If you watched the news, he told his mother that the lights were NOT working 2 weeks before the accident. I'm not making excuses, but you people are making this a place to show your stupidity. You nor I, nor anyone else knows what went on that day, only Bobbey, so keep your rude and hateful comments to yourself. This should be a memorial about Bobbey, not a place for the public to place rude remarks about a dear friend, whom you have no idea who it was, that will never be seen or heard from again.

    Jamie Kay...what do you mean "he warned his mother that the trains crossing lights were not working?" If that's the case ( and I still don't understand what the heck you mean), wouldn't he have slowed down to make sure nothing was coming?? Your comment makes no sense. By the way, everything was working properly that day. It's a tragedy but quit making excuses. A person made a bad judgment call and unfortunately, paid the ultimate price. I just hope other learn a lesson from this so it won't happen again.

    dear questions, you are no one to make an assumption that there was loud music or cell phone involved in this accident, and you like many other people do not know the location and condition of the crossing so I suggest that you gather the facts before you publicly post such statements. Because neither thing you listed played any role in the accident at all.

    I don't know who Questions is....because their too ashamed to list their name I guess...but they have no idea what their talking about. If they listened to the news at ALL or knew him...they'd know that he warned his mother that the trains crossing lights were not working, also there were NO bars NOR sirens at the crossing to let ANYONE know that a train was coming...have some sympathy for us...Bobbey was a great friend to us all..let up a little, it's not like we're not going through enough pain to listen to pathetic remarks about a dear friends death from someone who knows nothing about him...he will be missed forever...R.I.P. Bobbey Rose... Love Jamie Kay
