KEIZER, Ore. (KOIN) --- A 17-year-old girl did not respond to whistles and emergency bells and was hit by an Amtrak train traveling 60 mph through Marion County.
The train had 366 passengers aboard and was headed south to Klamath Falls, deputies said in a release. The engineer said he saw the girl and repeatedly blew the whistle and rang the bells, and when she did not move he tried to brake.
But the train hit the teen on the Union Pacific tracks north of Chemawa Road NE around 3:29 p.m., officials said. She died at the scene.
The victim was identified Tuesday as Hannah C. Patterson of Salem.
The Medical Examiner, a Deputy District Attorney and a Detective with the Amtrak Police Department assisted at the scene.
The train was delayed around an hour and 15 minutes before being released, according to the Marion County Sheriff's Office. The tracks remain closed by Union Pacific until the investigation can be completed.
