Pennsylvania State police said a teen was killed by a train while walking to school on Tuesday.

It happened around 8:15 a.m. in New Milford Township.

Troopers said 16-year-old Mahlon Christopher Mosher was walking to school on the train tracks wearing headphones and did not hear the train approaching, even as the train blew its air horn.
