Kingman Police and Fire department personnel respond to the scene of a fatality near the BNSF railroad tracks near the intersection of E. Andy Devine Ave. and Fairgrounds Blvd. intersection Tuesday afternoon.

KINGMAN – A 39-year-old Pomona, California woman was found dead near the BNSF railroad tracks across from the East Andy Devine Avenue and Fairgrounds Boulevard intersection Tuesday afternoon.

Kingman Police and Fire departments, as well as BNSF police, responded to the scene at around 2 p.m. A train was stopped on the tracks while a KPD Crime Scene unit conducted an investigation.

The cause of death is unknown at this time. More information will be provided as it becomes available.

The woman, who won’t be identified until police notify her next of kin, was laying on the tracks as the train approached, according to Kingman Police spokeswoman Jennifer Sochocki.

The conductor told police the woman tried to get off the tracks, but was unable to do so before the train struck her.

More information will be provided when it is available.

Correct wording please.There is a huge difference between being "found on the tracks" and the Conductor saying she was struck.Some of us were thinking it strange a body would be "found" on the tracks at 2:00 p.m.Like a murder and then dumped so a train would run over it.

"A 39-year-old Pomona, California woman was found dead near the BNSF railroad tracks." "The cause of death is unknown at this time." "The conductor told police the woman tried to get off the tracks, but was unable to do so before the train struck her."

Am I the only one that's a little confused here with this article?

Hey, the Miner...When did you become a lawyer for the railroad? Why are you going out of your way to protect the railroad?

This story is confusing... The woman, who won’t be identified until police notify her next of kin, was laying on the tracks as the train approached. The conductor told police the woman tried to get off the tracks, but was unable to do so before the train struck her. So its safe to say cause of death was the train ?
