Authorities say a woman is dead after being hit by a coal train passing through Quincy in central Washington state.
Grant County emergency management spokesman Kyle Foreman says the woman was on foot Sunday when she was hit by the eastbound Burlington Northern-Santa Fe train.
He says he doesn't have details of the crash and the woman's identity hasn't been determined.
BNSF spokesman Gus Melonas says the accident occurred just after 7:30 p.m. at a non-rail crossing in Quincy.
The BNSF train was en route from British Columbia to the Powder River Basin, Wyo.
Melonas says the line has been shut down for the investigation. He expects it to reopen about 9:30 p.m.
