An unidentified 65-year-old female was struck and killed by a train early Thursday in East Clark County.

On Thursday (July 21) at about 4:16 a.m., Camas Police, Washougal Police and Camas-Washougal Fire were dispatched to a collision involving a train and a pedestrian at the train crossing on SE Lechner Street. 

Arriving units discovered the female pedestrian had been struck and killed by a BNSF freight train.  No one aboard the train was injured.    

The investigation is ongoing but it appears that all of the implemented safety equipment near the tracks was functioning at the time of the collision. 

SE Lechner Street was closed for a short time during the investigation but has since re-opened.

No further details will be released at this time.
