Woman Dies After Being Hit By Train

Thursday November 14 2013




A WOMAN has died after being hit by a train.

The woman, who was struck at Chapeltown just after 3pm, suffered injuries to her head and foot but later died in hospital.

Rail services between Sheffield and Barnsley had delays of up to an hour, with trains diverted via Rotherham Central and replacement buses laid on.

A spokesman for British Transport Police said: "Officers were called to Chapeltown following a report that a woman had been struck by a train.

"It was reported to police at 3.05pm and is currently being treated as non-suspicious. Medics from Yorkshire Ambulance Service were also at the scene, treating the woman for injuries to her foot and head."

However, it was confirmed on Thursday morning by a BTP spokesman that she had sadly died from her injuries.

It was a tragic accident, she slipped and fell, she was struck by the train as she scrambled out of the way. She didn't jump and wasn't playing on the lines or near the edge. It was a tragic tragic accident. The police, firemen, ambulance and actually, asda staff did everything they could and should be commended. Rip dear lady.
