EUGENE — Eugene police say they’re trying to identify a woman who was fatally struck by a train as she chased a dog across the tracks.
The Eugene Register-Guard reports the woman died at the hospital.
Police said the crossing arms were down, and audio and visual warning signs had been activated when the woman was hit about 10 p.m. Monday.
The crossing is west of downtown Eugene.
Police said the woman didn’t have ID. They described her as 5 feet 6 inches tall, 140 pounds, in her late 20s, with brown hair.
The dog was unhurt. It was described as an Australian shepherd mix with a red collar and a gray harness. It was taken to a local shelter.
