MONTPELIER, Ind. (AP) - Authorities say a freight train has struck and killed a woman in eastern Indiana.

Blackford County Coroner Todd Waters tells The Star Press (https://tspne.ws/Qk69X4) the victim was a 29-year-old from Hartford City. Her name was being withheld pending notification of relatives.

The train struck and killed her about 8 a.m. Sunday at a crossing on State Route 18 in the town of Montpelier, about 35 miles south of Fort Wayne.

Waters says members of an EMS crew heard the train’s brakes locking and its horn blaring at the crossing. He says police were checking to see if security cameras at a nearby convenience store might have recorded anything related to the incident.
