The Beaver County coroner identified the woman killed after being hit by a train Sunday night in Ambridge as Terri Lynn Kudrna, 45, of Harmony.
Beaver County Coroner Teri Tatalovich-Rossi said Ms. Kudrna died of head trauma after a train struck her on the track near Route 65 and 13th Street in Ambridge.
Ambridge police Officer Zadock Dismuke said a train conductor observed the woman lying between two rails as his train headed north on a Norfolk Southern Railway track about 4:20 p.m. The conductor told police he blew his horn but the woman didn't move and he couldn't stop the train in time to avoid it hitting her.
Officer Dismuke said she suffered head trauma, but there were no indications that she was crushed by the train.
Ms. Tatalovich-Rossi said authorities are still investigating the manner of death.
