A cyclist, apparently with earbuds jammed in, rode in front of a moving TRAX commuter train in Salt Lake City. He died enroute to the hospital. Story HERE.
How sad is that?!!
The guy was 32 years old.
The poor conductor - he saw the guy and sounded the horn. But you can't bring a train to an instant stop.
Cyclists who listen to the earbuds should sit up and take note. Are you sure you can safely surrender your sense of hearing? It would have to be some righteous tunes, to be worth losing your life over!
