Woman struck, killed by passenger train

Salem, Ore. — Salem Police officers responded to the 1800 block of Bill Frey DR NE yesterday, November 22, shortly after 6:00 p.m., on the call of a person struck by a passenger train traveling through the city.

Patrol officers learned the Amtrak engineer sounded the horn when a woman was spotted sitting on the tracks. The woman, identified as Judith Araceli Mojica Abarca of Salem, stood up, however, not in sufficient time to avoid being struck by the fast-moving train.

The 47-year-old Abarca was pronounced deceased at the scene.
