Britta Aker, who was just 27-years-old, was killed early yesterday morning when she walked across Union Pacific Railroad tracks in Newark, California. Our hearts go out to the family of this young woman; especially knowing that it will be difficult for them to recover damages for civil liability. This is true because most courts will hold that railroad tracks themselves are sufficient warning to the danger of being struck by a train, and therefore tend to rule in favor of the defendant railway company.
