Posted: Updated:

NORTH SIOUX CITY, S.D. (AP) - Authorities have identified a 42-year-old woman killed by a freight train near the South Dakota-Iowa border.

Police say Janelle Sorenson, 42, of South Sioux City, Neb., intentionally stepped in front of the train around 5:30 p.m. Monday.

The call came in from the Triple Crown Casino in North Sioux City, S.D., where several people standing outside said they saw it happen.

One witness said she saw a person walk in front of the Burlington Northern Santa Fe train as it crossed the train bridge. She says the train wasn't moving very fast, and tried to stop right away.
