    18-yr old jogger killed by train/had headphones on

    Just my opinion, of course.

    I hate to hear these things. I wonder why she was running in the tracks? Lots of young people feel nothing bad will happen to them. But of all the places to run, why in the tracks?

    Her poor parents and family & friends.

    I was about her same age (19), when I drove one day with head phones on (music playing loudly). I was barely able to skid to a stop just as a train was coming through. By the time I stopped the train was right in front of me. There were no gates, just a sign about the train crossing (which of course I paid no attention to). I never drove with headphones on again and am extemely cautious when approaching train tracks. It scared the crap out of me and was something I have never forgotten about.

    I can't imagine why someone would jog on the tracks, but teens are notorious for their lack of judgement and the attitude that "it won't happen to me".
