In the eighth train-pedestrian fatal accident this year in Washington State, a woman bicyclist was killed by an Amtrak train in Bellingham around 7:45pm Tuesday evening.
The 49-year-old woman has yet to be identified according to KOMO TV news. The woman was at a pedestrian crossing marked with signs at the time of the accident. There is some speculation that she may have been listening to music and did not hear the train. Trains are allowed to travel at 35mph in that stretch of track.
