Local news outlets report that both of these young people ignored the horn of the train approaching them from the rear as they walked along the tracks. Both turned at the last moment, saw the train (which by that time was in emergency), and the boy pushed his girlfriend to the side. He was hit and killed. She was hit and severely injured, but is expected to survive.

Dumb people probably with headphones, tuned-up music, and texting, not looking where they're going!
Not even that... why were they on the tracks to begin with? This is tragic, but completely preventable if people would just STAY OFF THE DAMN TRACKS!!!
