Pregnant 19-Year-Old Model Killed While Posing for Photo Shoot On Train Tracks

Some sad news to report as it has been confirmed that a pregnant 19-year-old Texas woman was fatally struck by a train while having photos taken of her on the tracks in a bid to launch her modeling career. Check out the details below…

Fredzania Thompson attended Blinn College in Bryan but wanted to put her education on hold to begin modeling, her mother told the Eagle.

“That’s definitely what she wanted to do,” Hakamie Stevenson told the newspaper. “It’s what she had started to do the day she was deceased.”

Thompson was standing between two sets of tracks Friday in Navasota when a BNSF Railway train approached, according to the paper. She moved out of the way, but was apparently unaware that a Union Pacific train was coming in the opposite direction.

The teen passed away from her injuries on her way to the hospital, according to the newspaper.

SMH….that’s sad. I never understood these types of stories about people getting hit by trains. How is that two people, the model and the photographer, were not able to hear a train coming? They’re not exactly quiet machinery and you know exactly where they’re going to go. Either way, R.I.P. to the young lady involved in this tragedy.
