Police say a teenager was struck by a train and killed while running along a set of railroad tracks while listening to a portable music player.
The New Mexico State Police reports that Amanda Byrne, 18, of Rowe, was hit by the Amtrak train shortly before 2 p.m. The engineer told police that he attempted to use the horn to signal Ms. Byrne, but was unsuccessful.
Ms. Byrne, an honor roll student at Pecos High School and member of the cross-country track team, apparently did not hear the horn. A headband also covered her ears.
Seeing a copy of the New Mexico accident report is extremely important. Reports are critical to professional investigations and also serve to create peace of mind for the victims and their families. Without an official report, you’ll likely be unaware of several key facts that help to explain how the accident happened, and you’ll also be unable to dispute any inaccuracies the accident report may contain.
