A man who was walking along Stockton Boulevard was injured after being struck by the Regional Transit light rail train. He had been talking on his cell phone when he was hit.

Reports indicate that he suffered serious injuries.

Although the facts and circumstances surrounding this accident are unknown, it serves as a reminder to pedestrians to be aware of their surroundings. Often pedestrians are injured, even when they have the right of way, as the result of being distracted by cell phone calls, texting and music. When a person is hit by another vehicle – train, car, bus or even bicycle – the injuries can be severe. People simply cannot protect themselves from the force of the impact.

As a California personal injury attorney, I’ve seen too many accidents happen even to the most cautious people. My advice to pedestrians when walking near light rail train tracks, is to always be on the look out. It may be nearly impossible for a train to stop in time, even if the conductor notices a pedestrian in its path.
