Woman killed by light rail

DENVER (AP) - Authorities believe a woman who was struck and killed by a light rail train in Denver committed suicide.

Police spokesman John White tells The Denver Post the woman was struck at 11:45 p.m. Saturday after she entered a fenced-off area of track between Mississippi and Acoma. She was pronounced dead at the scene.

Investigators are unsure how the woman managed to get inside the fenced area. White says he does not know how fast the train was going or if any passengers were on board.
