"who was fatally killed after being struck by an Amtrak train "

What other ways can you be killed? I agree with 7:17PM that there must be an unidentified mystery to this.

Trains don't yield to pedestrians.
Or anything.

What's up with all these pedestrian problems lately?

Somewhere, there is a cop coming up with some ideas for some new laws regarding the very dangerous practice of....walking.
"Talking while walking".
"Failure to walk in a straight line".
"Walking without an ID".
"Improper walking".
"Walking with intent to run".
"Walking without a permit" (Yeah, thats coming).
"Walking without displaying a permit".
"Walking in a threatening manner".
"Walking in proximity to a moving vehicle"
"Conspiracy to walk".
"Walking while in possession of currency".
"Skipping while walking". (a felony and 5 points on your walking permit, which will eventually be overturned by a liberal judge for the discriminatory effects on transgendered and gay people).
Don't laugh. You laughed at the "Rain Tax", too, remember? Remember?? And the idea that you could be ticketed for "looking down" while driving? Thought that was funny, too? Look at ya now....
We need LAWS! More laws!! This irresponsible walking HAS TO END!!
And we can count on the police to go for ZERO DEATHS while walking! No matter how many tickets and fines we will be forced to issue! You WILL comply.
Stay tuned for the next campaign!
Keep cheering.
