Police say a 27-year-old woman who was texting walked into the path of a freight train, was clipped and thrown into the air, but survived.

Police say Sheena Keynna appeared to be texting Monday afternoon as she walked around the crossing gates and into the path of the passing freight train in Lakeland in central Florida.

Police Sgt. Gary Gross told the Ledger of Lakeland the woman “wasn’t paying attention.” She suffered a compound fracture to her right arm, and her right leg was injured.

She was taken to a hospital, but no additional information was available.

CSX spokeswoman Kristin Seay says the train had two locomotives and was carrying consumer goods from Winter Haven to Jacksonville.

Two Amtrak trains were delayed during the investigation.
