Women killed by train


The train killed the woman? You make it sound like this train intended to kill this woman. Are you trying to say this train quietly snuck up on her and she didn’t hear it or see the train lights or feel the ground shaking until it got too close and when she realized it was a train she looked down and saw that she was standing on the track and it was just too late to react? Or what?

Anything else? Like what was she doing out there in the dark? Wash she homeless? Was she committing suicide? Was she on drugs trying to outrun a train? What?
