Her name is Fredzania “Zanie” Thompson, a 19 years old model. She was seen smiling as she stands between two sets of tracks during a photo shoot in Navasota, Texas.
She moved away when a train operated by Union Pacific was approaching, but unknown to her another speeding Burlington Northern locomotive hurtling towards her in the opposite direction. She was rushed to hospital after the horror smash but died on the way, according to local reports.
Shawn Myatt Navasota Assistant City Manager said: “There are basically two railroad tracks at that point, one is Burlington Northern to the west and one is Union Pacific to the east, and she was in between the two tracks. Burlington Northern had a train on their track coming and she turned back to the east to walk across the Union Pacific track and walked right in front of the Union Pacific train that was heading south.”
Ms Thompson is a College student, she planned to put her education on hold while she pursue her dream of becoming a model.
She got engaged to Earl Chatman, 25, who said “she had the most beautiful smile, a kind and caring person.” Meanwhile, a volleyball fan had revealed to her fiancé that she was expecting his child.
A GoFundMe page has now been set up to pay for the funeral, it is expected to take place during the week.
