Teenager hit by train whilst texting, somehow survives

Granted, this isn’t the first run-in we’ve seen between trains and an SMS-minded individual, but the former story certainly didn’t involve a train coming into contact with a human. This time, however, an 18-year old Ohio resident managed to get carted away from a devastating collision after being struck by an oncoming locomotive. The kid apparently waited for one train to pass, but rather than double-checking for anything coming in the opposite direction, he simply forged ahead. Consequently, he was thrown 50-feet and knocked unconscious mid-sentence, but is thankfully recovering in a Cincinnati hospital.
