SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – A woman who was hit and injured by a light rail train on Wednesday is the woman reported missing earlier this week, according to the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department.
Witnesses say the woman stepped on the tracks near the Watt Avenue station as the light rail driver honked twice. But the woman didn’t notice the train until it was too late and was dragged several feet.
“He honked the horn two times and then she immediately saw it, and she ducked and then that’s kind of how she got sucked under,” witness Emmanuel Gonzalez said.
Alice Alspektor, 66, went missing from her home on Edison Avenue at around 9:30 p.m. Tuesday. A Silver Alert had been issued and the public was asked to look out for her because she was diagnosed as bipolar and has dementia.
Fortunately, Alspektor survived the incident.
“I ran over. I said, ‘Hey, are you OK? Are you OK?’ And the person who was under there moved her leg,” witness Chauncey Wynn said. “They were still breathing.”
It’s unknown how badly Alspektor was injured.
