Brand-new train hits, kills woman
A high-speed train that was offering preview runs a day before its debut struck and killed a woman, police in Florida said Saturday.
The woman, 32-year-old Melissa Lavell, was crossing the tracks of the new Brightline train after the sun set Friday, Boynton Beach police said.
Witnesses told police the woman tried to make it across after the crossing gates were down, attempting to beat the train, which was traveling north. No one on the train was hurt.
