Woman Attempts Suicide by Driving into Train

Woman Attempts Suicide by Driving into Train

by Kevin Caruso

On May 24, 2004, an unidentified woman from Swartz Creek, Michigan, attempted suicide by intentionally driving around a railroad crossing gate and into the side of a moving train.

Uninjured, she got out of her car and walked back to her apartment.

Police were called to the scene of the accident and searched for a body along the tracks. When they did not find one, they found out who the owner of the car was and went to her apartment.

The woman confessed to intentionally crashing into the side of the train, and indicated that she was trying to die by suicide.

She was taken to a psychiatric hospital for observation and treatment.

It is extremely likely that this woman is suffering from a mental illness, most probably from depression.

Untreated depression is the number one cause of suicide.

She needed to reach out for help if she was suicidal -- that is what everyone needs to do who is suicidal.

Suicide never solves problems and never ends pain.

Suicide always causes problems and always causes pain.

Again, untreated depression is the number one cause of suicide.

If you think that you may be depressed, please make appointments with a doctor and a therapist so that you may be assessed and treated.

Depression needs to be treated, just like any other illness.

Please get help if you need it.

If you or someone you know is suicidal, please go to the Home Page of this website for immediate help.

Thank you.

I love you.

Take care,

Kevin Caruso
