Dude Walks Away After Being Hit By Train

Kristopher Wenberg, 25, was walking along a section of track that runs parallel to S.W. Topeka Boulevard Thursday evening when the train struck him.

The train operator said he sounded the horn and slowed the train but Wenberg kept walking and wound up getting hit."


And now for the rest of the story...

Wenberg was talking on his cellphone, and totally oblivious to the precarious situation.
