WATERLOO, Iowa (AP) - Authorities say a 67-year-old woman was badly injured when she tried to climb through a parked train on her way home in Waterloo and the train lurched forward.

The Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier reports that Oneida Cosby has been taken to an Iowa City hospital for treatment.

Police say Cosby left a convenience store around 11:20 p.m. Wednesday and then tried to get through the train, which dragged her after it lurched. Officials say one of her legs was severed and the other severely injured.

The accidence is being investigated.
