LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Authorities have identified a woman who died after her SUV was hit by a train in southwest Louisville.

WAVE-TV said Jefferson County Deputy Coroner Jack Arnold identified the woman as 56-year-old Robin Wolfe. The station said she was leaving a church picnic when she was hit.

Police said the woman attempted to cross the tracks when she was hit by a Norfolk Southern Line train at 8:45 p.m. EDT Wednesday.

She was pronounced dead at the scene. A police spokesman said there are no crossing arms at the intersection, but several witnesses did tell officers they heard the train blow its whistle.

Wolfe was alone in her vehicle at the time of the crash.

The Courier-Journal said Wolfe was a retired Indiana teacher who had taught in Crawford County and Lanesville.
