Police say Sheena Keynna appeared to be texting Monday afternoon as she walked around the crossing gates and into the path of a passing freight train in Lakeland.
Lakeland police Sgt. Gary Gross told the Ledger of Lakeland the woman "wasn't paying attention." She was clipped by the train and tossed into the air. She suffered a compound fracture to her right arm and her right leg was also injured.
