A young woman is dead after being struck by a train in the middle of a photo shoot.

That's according to The Navasota Assistant City Manager Shawn Myatt.

Myatt said 19-year-old Fredzania Thompson was taking photos with a photographer south of Johnson street when a train came from one direction.

Witnesses say Thompson turned to leave the other direction when a Union Pacific train heading south came and hit her.

She was taken to a nearby hospital where she was pronounced dead.

Thompson attended Blinn College.
