SAN LORENZO, Calif. (AP) - Officials say a 15-year-old Hayward boy who was hit and killed by an Amtrak train was playing "chicken" with two other teens when he was struck by the train Thursday evening.
Alameda County sheriff's Deputy April Luckett, a department spokeswoman, says Austin Price and the two other boys were on their bikes trying to cross in front of the train when Price was hit by the train.
Luckett says the two other teens were not hurt.
Price was a student at nearby San Lorenzo High School, where students told the San Francisco (http://bit.ly/14j5NWs ) that students frequently hang around the tracks, even though signs on a fence separating the tracks and the school warn students not to come too close.
San Lorenzo is about 13 miles southeast Oakland.
