Man Post Fairwell Message on Facebook Before Driving Car on Railroad Track

Antjuan Colvin, a 21-year-old  California man who friends say battled depression, wrote a haunting farewell message  which he posted on Facebook on Christmas Eve… Forty-five  minutes later… he drove onto a railroad crossing in Hughson, California where he was struck by a train which was traveling at around 75mph… and pronounced dead at the scene. 

The San Joaquin Train, which is operated by Amtrak was in route from Bakersfield to Sacramento. The train was carrying 98 passengers.

Colvin’s family and friends who read his post which appeared on his Facebook page at 9:00 PM., scrambled to contact the troubled man, with many asking on if he was okay or whether the message was a joke.

The message read…’To all my friends and family on Facebook,’ it said. ‘Thank you all you have all made an impact on my life. I know its not my time to go but I cannot take living any longer. So as of tonight I will end my life. Merry Christmas…….Goodbye.’
