Eighteen year old Brittney Silva was walking down busy Hesperian Blvd in San Leandro, California and hit by an Amtrak train at a railroad crossing. She couldn’t hear the oncoming train due to the earbuds she was wearing.

Around 5:55pm Monday, Britney was listening to music when she received a text message. She became embroiled in an argument with her father, and shut the world out around her, becoming oblivious to the danger speeding towards her.

Another pedestrian tried to get her attention, but Brittney wouldn’t take her attention off the cellphone. Her mother warned her to only put one earbud in at a time, so she could hear the world around her, and offered a warning to other children to do the same.

    I dont get whats with teens that dont look ahead since they cant hear a thing.
    I jog with my headpones but I never take my eyes off the road and when I am near a intersection/crossing or a train passage I take my headpones off.
    Its a shame people have to die for that much lack of attention.

  10. AidanPlaysGame,ReactingToVideo HD says:

  12. Alejandro Elizalde says:

    I know where those exact train tracks are at.

  13. harderizbetter4me says:

    The Ear Buds blasting music has nothing to do with ere getting run over by a fast movinf train…if you look at the video she was looking and texting while walking; when you are looking down doing this with your phone you are liable to get hit by vehicle or bumped into somebody. I see this happening everyday and yet some people are so distracted they don’t what is coming in from or the side of them, even if their life is about to end.

  14. ramivalencia says:

    I feel bad for those who had to witness this girl getting her brains bashed in by a train. That’s all.

  19. chuckufarly5 says:

  20. BornToRunBarefoot says:

  21. bunny fish says:

  22. James Roy says:

  23. TreinenNederland says:

  24. Turtel mcguire says:

  27. Brian Johnson says:

  28. Mohammad Adam says:

    If what’s depicted here is absolutely correct as happened, that guy waving hands could have saved that dumbo, but it requires a lot of courage.

  29. Fknrage913 0 says:

  43. KellyAnn McGregor says:

  44. HighSkiez says:

    I’m so confused. How could she not hear a train and a person yelling at the exact same time?

    Word of advice for everyone. Never ever walk around outside with headphones on.
