Kid Plays Chicken on Train Trestle and Dies

In the 1970s there was a game between two kids. It is called "Chicken." The way the game is played is two kids stand on the trestle and wait for the train to come by. Whoever jumps out of the way first loses, and is called a "Chicken." So one day two kids played the game on the train trestle going over Montauk Hwy. They waited for the train until it came by.  As the train approached, one kid jumped out of the way. Hackett was hit by the train and won the game.

Dead Man's Curve

     There was a street called Lincoln Ave. It made a 90 degree left, then right. The Cartoonist's family lived on Lincoln Ave. After midnight one night his brother drove his car full speed past their house, then at the turn in front of his Lincoln Avenue Elementary school he rammed full speed into the OAK trees. The car "Poked" into the "Oaks." He did not die, he just lost an arm. He then walked a mile in the middle of the night without an arm to the railroad tracks and waited until the next train came by, and was ran over by the train. This occurred in the early 80s.
