Two brothers were struck and killed by a train while mourning a third brother who died in the same spot on the train tracks a week earlier, according to police in Charlotte, N.C. The double fatality happened early last Tuesday outside Charlotte, where a LYNX Blue Line train fatally struck two men on the light rail track. Pablo Tiquiram Us, 29, and his younger brother Jose, 20, were walking up the tracks around 5 a.m. when they were hit by the oncoming train, Charlotte police said. They were pronounced dead at the scene. Police say the two men were on the tracks to conduct a memorial for their brother Baltazar Tiquiram Us, 27, who was struck by a train while in his car on July 26.
