It's True

While on the way home, a bus full of first and second graders broke down while driving across these railroad tracks. Rather than going to look for help, the driver told the children to get off the bus and push it across the tracks; they were struck down by a train. Now it is said that if one drives to the site and puts the car in neutral, it will be pushed over the tracks. Allegedly if one spreads baby powder on the back of the car before going to the site, he will see fingerprints when he leaves.

Growing up here my friends and I went many times to try this.

We got fingerprints every time!

All the streets around this track are named after the children who died.

we have a hill like that here. if you go down the hill and put it into neutral it will get pushed back up the hill to avoid the accident that the motorcyclist had.  they say if you put powder on the hood of the car you will see hand prints
