Electronics give people the opportunity to live in a world of their own.
Sometimes, though, this may not end well.
A train struck a man who was walking on the railway tracks in Joppa, Md., Thursday.
Police say the freight train approached him from behind. Its conductor said he sounded the horn.
That seems to have had no effect on 37-year-old Kevin Scott Street. For, police say, he was wearing earbuds.
According to CBS Baltimore, Street was struck by the 20-car freight train just after noon.
