Something insensitive

Who the fuck gets hit by a train?

I'm not talking about someone who falls on the tracks, or is pushed by an overeager crowd (this happened at 15th Street), but about people crossing or walking along tracks who get hit. A train is an enormous, metal, din-creating machine that generates a hideously loud noise during its earth-shaking approach. That seems as conspicuous as they come, right? Be that as it may, SEPTA tells people again and again not to cross the tracks, and yet every year a few cement-heads manage to get themselves whacked by the iron horse. I don't get it.
