The accident happened just before 1:00 pm. 19 year old Fredzania Thompson was posing in a photo shoot near the railroad tracks. She moved off of one set of tracks as a train approached, and was struck by a Union Pacific freight train approaching on the second set of tracks. Reports indicate that there’s a possibility Fredzania became stuck on the tracks and was unable to move.
Fredzania was rushed to a local hospital and was tragically pronounced dead. The accident remains under investigation at this time to determine cause and liability.
