SNOHOMISH COUNTY, WA — A woman was seriously hurt Wednesday afternoon after being hit by a passenger train while on railroad tracks in Everett’s Lowell area, reports My Everett News.
A southbound train was approximately 1000 yards south of the Lowell-Snohomish River Road train crossing when it collided with the female pedestrian.
Crew members on the train located and helped the woman aboard the train to shuttle her back to the crossing where she was received by responding Everett fire crews and medics.
The victim suffered serious injuries and was rushed to Providence Regional Medical Center. No further information on her condition has been released.
The incident, which left the crossing closed for about half an hour, was being investigated by Everett Police and Burlington Northern officials.
