ATHOL, Idaho (AP) - Officials in northern Idaho say a 65-year-old woman is being treated after stepping in front of a slow-moving train and being struck.

The Kootenai County Sheriff’s Office says deputies responded at about 6 a.m. Wednesday and found the Athol resident underneath one of the railcars.

Authorities say she was extricated from the Union Pacific tracks in the city of Athol and airlifted to Kootenai Health in Coeur d’Alene.

Authorities say the extent of her injuries isn’t clear but they don’t appear to be life-threatening.

Lt. Stu Miller says the investigation is continuing.
