Woman Dies In Train Accident

A Pascagoula woman was killed when her car was struck by a freight train at the intersection of Highway 90 and Industrial Road this morning. Witnesses say 65 year old Dorothy C. Brooks drove around cross arms and began driving north through the intersection, when her car was struck by a westbound freight train.

There are two sets of tracks at the intersection and witnesses say Brooks was looking in the direction of a stationary eastbound train and failed to look the other way before entering the intersection.

Brooks was pronounced dead on the scene.
