KINGMAN, Ariz. (AP) - Authorities say a woman who was killed after lying on train tracks and getting struck by a train in northwestern Arizona has been identified as a California resident.

Kingman police say 39-year-old Amber Marie Pattee was from the Sacramento area.

They say she had been in the Kingman area for several days before the Jan. 10 incident.

Police say Pattee was lying down on the westbound tracks in between the rails.

As the train approached, she attempted to get off the tracks but the conductor was unable to stop the train in time to avoid striking Pattee, who suffered fatal injuries.

Before arriving in Kingman, police say Pattee had been arrested in the Bullhead City area and booked into the Mohave County Adult Detention Facility for an undisclosed charge.
