“A woman was trespassing on our tracks in North Conway, fairly close to the station,” she said. “She was facing the train. Our engineer blew his horn, and she just stood there and the engine hit her.”

The engineer hit the brakes as hard as possible without potentially hurting someone on the train, Logan said, according to the Union Leader.
