Model killed by train during photo shoot on Texas tracks


Texas authorities are investigating the death of a 19-year-old woman, who was hit by a train on railroad tracks about 60 miles northwest of Houston.

Police said that Fredzania Thompson was struck and killed by the train while she posed for photos in hopes of launching a modeling career.

Thompson was standing between two sets of tracks March 10 in Navosta as a BNSF train approached, according to The Associated Press. As the Blinn College student moved out of the way, she was struck by a Union Pacific train that was coming from the opposite direction.

The person who was photographing her was not injured.

 

The Associated Press contributed to this report.
