Local News

The investigation continues on how a woman who was killed by a train Saturday got on the tracks in the first place.

Sabrina Kantarevic, 43, was killed by a westbound CSX train Saturday on the tracks at West 14th and Cascade streets.

Kantarevic was in a wheelchair, but Erie County Coroner Lyell Cook said she was not in her chair when she was hit by the train.

Cook said video footage from the train shows Kantarevic was alive and lying on the tracks.

Cook and Erie Police Chief Randy Bowers said the question remains how she got on the tracks.

The investigation continues, however, Bowers said they may never be able to determine how she ended up on the tracks.
