A 19-year-old woman died Friday night after being struck by an Amtrak train in Kent, according to authorities.
The incident occurred around 8 p.m. and was not near a level crossing, said BNSF Railway spokesman Gus Melonas. BNSF police shut down traffic to investigate along with the Kent Police Department, but expected to reopen the railway around 10 p.m.
This is the 13th person killed on BNSF tracks so far this year, Melonas said.
The King County Medical Examiner’s Office identified the woman Monday, but the manner of death is still under investigation by Kent Police.
