EL PASO - A Union Pacific train hit and killed a woman in Central El Paso overnight.

The accident happened around 1:30am, in the 3000 block of Douglas Avenue. Train operators say they saw the women on the tracks, but couldn't stop in time. Investigators are now trying to figure out why she was on the tracks.

People who live in the area say they'll think twice before crossing the tracks from now on.

"Yea, I'm going to think about it. I'm going to go through Piedras right now where it's safe, safe and sound," Larry Maldonado said.

Investigators haven't released the woman's name, because they want to notify family members first. They say she was in her 20's.

Police are still investigating.

May she R.I.P....but ppl dont judge because ur nobody to judge only god can.

Unless someone was present when it happened, let's not assume anything, maybe it was intentional, however based on the many articles I have read (as I am a friend of hers and desperately seeking answers) it seems there is more to it. Let the investigation call this one and let her rest in peace without false and uneducated guesses dragging her name through the dirt. Thank you.

@utep grad I completely agree with you ...I went to school with her as well n kno she wouldn'thave chosen this way to go as carygr stated this seriously needs to be investigated so we can all kno and stop goin crazy questioning why ! RIP my dear friend I love you so much u will always remain in my heart

This could have very well been the woman's choice, but I suspect foul play. I went to the same high school as her and cannot conceive why she would go to the other side of town and "lay" on the train tracks as the El Paso Times article stated. I hope they do a thorough investigation to put her family's mind at ease. My deepest condolences.

Obviously, this is not an accident. She chose a train to exit this world. Condolances to her family. A true train accident is usually a car trying to beat a train across the signal lights, or a hobo falling, trying to catch a free ride. People do not intentionally walk into a train accidently. Once again, condolances to her family.
