Renton man killed by train while talking on his cell phone

In the second pedestrian vs. train accident of this type within the past few weeks (see previous posting), a 50-year-old Renton, Washington man was killed by an Amtrak train while he was talking on his cell phone. KOMO TV reports that the accident occurred in Auburn near the Emerald Downs race track around noon. Apparently, the man did not hear the train’s horn because of his phone conversation.

Angie Rodriguez (age 17) was killed about two weeks ago by an Amtrak train as she talked on her cell phone while walking near train tracks in Kent.
