As passing motorists watched in horror, an East Texas woman steps in the path of an oncoming train in a bizarre case of attempted suicide. Witnesses say it happened around 11:20 this morning when a woman got out of her car near Ethridge road and Highway 80 near Hallsville... and then walked in front of an eastbound locomotive.
The 45 year old woman was struck by the train and thrown clear of the tracks... suffering broken legs and multiple broken bones. She was rushed to an area hospital. Those who saw it say it was clear that it was no accident.
