(Reuters) – An Amtrak train struck and killed a woman who was listening to music while jogging along the tracks, police said on Saturday.

Amanda Byrne, 18 of Rowe, N.M., apparently was listening to music on an earpiece or headset as she was jogging along the tracks in Rowe, New Mexico on Friday afternoon and did not hear the train’s warning horn as it approached her from behind, Lt. Eric Garcia said Saturday. Byrne also was wearing a headband that covered her ears.
