Teen girl survives train crash
(2007-01-25)
(WOUB) - A teenage girl who survived a train accident in Ironton Wednesday told the police about what happened.

The 13 year old girl whose name was not released said that she was just playing with her two friends around the railroad tracks when an oncoming train struck and killed them.

Her friends were 13 year old Lacy Parnell and 14 year old Jamie Barker.

Officials say the train was going 50 to 60 miles an hour and was coming around a curve.

The engineer didn't even see the girls until he was right up on them.

Norfolk Southern Railways sent a team from Cincinnati to help authorities investigate the accident.
