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.
