I was on the train that hit this woman. Right before the train stopped, several of us saw a dead woman facedown in a ditch along the tracks. She was just wearing underwear. We thought it was why the train stopped. We stopped right in front of the fairgrounds, so this would have been just a little east of there. I can't find any info on what happened to her. A woman on the train also had a heart attack at the same time, so there were three different ambulance working the scene. Does anyone know what happened to the woman who died?

Does anyone know what happened with the dead woman found in the ditch near the train tracks close to the Bent County Fairgrounds? She was found after Jennifer Fries was hit by the train. I couldn't see any obvious wounds and she was not dressed, so doubt she was hit by a train.
Thanks for any info; it's bothering me for some reason.

I use to live on locust right next to the tracks and I never saw the lights going off when a train was stopped they went off right when they stopped but I always saw ppl go over the track if they thought they could make it and I have even did it when my hubby had to get to work at the pig farm and we were late... I am truly sorry that someone had to pass on like that, and I am really sorry for the ppl she left behind... may she rest in peace...
