Before a fatal train crash in Los Angeles, California, the engineer sent a text message to an unmentioned number. The scary part, is that it was only 22 seconds before the train crashed, resulting in immediate death of the engineer. Since the death, there are more bills being sent to congress about cell phones on trains, and the number of hours a crew member can work before having to take a break. Turns out, that by sending that text message, he lost his life, and may have saved the lives of many engineers to come.
