Teen Hit By Train in 'Chicken' Game
Nov. 15, 1993
FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) _ An 18-year-old was struck by a train while playing ''chicken'' with friends on a railroad track, authorities said.
Felicia Rifenburgh suffered a broken pelvis when the train caught her left leg Sunday night, said Sonya Freedman, Fort Lauderdale police department spokeswoman.
She was listed in good condition Monday at Broward General Medical Center.
''One of the other people was on the railroad tracks and jumped off, but she got hit,'' Freedman said.
When police arrived, Rifenburgh's friends had fled, probably because trespassing on the track is illegal, Freedman said.
But she said she did not expect Rifenburgh to be charged.
