Woman dies after being hit by train in Carlsbad

A woman was fatally struck by a freight train in Carlsbad, a sheriff’s sergeant said today.

A northbound train struck the woman at the Grand Avenue railroad
crossing about 10:30 p.m. Tuesday, said San Diego County sheriff’s Sgt. Thomas Yancey.

A sheriff’s deputy at the scene told a freelance cameraman the woman was in a dispute with someone in a nearby bar – Coyote’s – and that she was jumping on and off the tracks as the train approached.

The death wasn’t believed to be a suicide, just an accident, according
to deputies and witnesses. It was unclear how fast the train was going. The woman’s name was not immediately available, but sources at the scene said she was 51 and from Washington state.

Yancey said warning systems were working. The crossing arm lowered, red
warning lights flashed and warning bells sounded as the train approached, he said.
