He could stop, and he could look, but I guess he couldn’t listen (to the horn blasting):

A 21-year-old man wearing earphones walked in front of a Green Line train and was struck by a trolley near Boston College, according to an MBTA spokesman.

I read it here.

I do hope the man is okay. What a horrible thing. But I wonder how many who wear earphones (or earbuds, or are talking loudly on a phone) might have the same thing happen. I don’t know that it’s just that one can’t hear; we just don’t pay much attention when we are listening to something … okay, okay, this is just my opinion. (Or “opiniong” as I usually type.) And what do I know?
