Texting women hit by train, lives


LAKELAND, FLA. — A 27-year-old woman who was texting walked into the path of a freight train, was clipped and thrown into the air but survived, police say.

Police say Sheena Keynna appeared to be texting Monday afternoon as she walked around the crossing gates and into the path of the passing freight train in Lakeland in central Florida.

Police Sgt. Gary Gross said the woman “wasn’t paying attention.” She suffered a compound fracture to her right arm, and her right leg was injured.
