An official with the Alborn Fire Department told Eyewitness News that the female was believed to have been walking along the tracks when she was struck by a southbound train.

The St. Louis County Sheriff's Office says the woman, a 44-year-old from Saginaw, died at the scene.

County Road 8 was closed for about two hours following the crash, but has since reopened.
