Woman’s Legs Crushed By Train In Oakdale

OAKDALE (CBS13) — A woman is in serious condition Wednesday after she was run over by a train in Oakdale on Tuesday night, according to police.

Oakdale police officers responded to the ConAgra parking lot shortly before 10:30 p.m. and found a 55-year-old Modesto woman trapped under the train with major injuries to her legs.

Witnesses told police that the woman appeared to not have seen the train as she was crossing the rail road tracks which run through the ConAgra parking lot.

Witness stated the train was traveling very slowly and that the female nearly made it across the tracks when the corner of the train struck her and pulled her under the train.

The victim was transported to Memorial Hospital where she was in critical condition. Police did not immediately release the woman’s name.

    How in hell do you NOT see a train? Oh right! Texting on the phone? Or out in the zone when chatting on the phone? Or just stupid enough to think you can out run one? Damn that’s a Darwin Award winner in the news every day it seems. No wonder the world is going to hell faster these days. Yes Darwin you were right its a planet of apes. We are dumb apes. And NO you were wrong we are NOT evolving into something better.
