The woman killed Friday by a train has been identified.
According to the Caledonia police, Jocelyn M. Flashinski of Wauwatosa was killed after getting struck by a southbound Amtrak train Friday evening near 4 Mile Road and Highway H in Caledonia. Flashinski does have ties to the Racine area. She was 31.
Patch reached out to the Flashinski family, but relatives were too distraught to comment.
Police said Flashinski ran onto the tracks and that "the incident is not criminal in nature." The train was traveling from Milwaukee to Chicago.
Vince Patoka, a passenger on a northbound train from Chicago to Milwaukee that had to stop after the accident, told Patch that the conductor had been making announcements about every 20 minutes to apologize for the inconvenience.
Passengers were told there was an incident on the track ahead of their train that had no impact on passenger safety, Patoka said.
That train was able to pull into the Sturtevant station at approximately 8 p.m., and by 9 p.m. was going to be allowed to continue its journey north into Milwaukee.
Patch will continue to follow this story and update as details become available.
