SAN DIEGO — Authorities have found out who the woman who was killed last week when she was hit by a train in the Bay Park neighborhood.
The San Diego County Medical Examiner’s Office says that 44-year-old Cherie Crick was walking on the east side of the eastbound train tracks, north of the Clairemont Drive Trolley Station when the accident happened around 7:30 p.m. Tuesday.
Authorities say the driver of a COASTER train saw the woman and honked the train’s horn before putting on the brakes. Even though he tried to get the woman’s attention and stop the crash, the COASTER hit Crick, who was then thrown by the train.
The medical examiner’s office said that someone called 911 and that emergency services were sent to the scene, which was in the 2700 block of Morena Boulevard.
Upon their arrival, paramedics contacted the woman who authorities say was unresponsive. She had a lot of blunt-force injuries, so she was declared dead at the scene.
