Possible witnesses to an accident who were with a woman before she was struck by a train on Saturday say that she will be interviewed today, according to Saline Township Police Chief Jen Hays.
Hays said 26-year-old Jamie Rose of Salineville “is in very serious condition. Details of her condition are only being released to her family.”
Rose was initially treated at the scene by Saline Township, Irondale and Highland emergency personnel before she was transported to the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. A spokesperson at the UPMC Media Relations office did not return phone calls today requesting an update on the condition of Rose. According to Hays, the accident occurred near Pioneer Street near the Jefferson and Columbiana county border. Hays said the train conductor “saw the woman on the track but was unable to stop the train.”
