Train crushes American

The week's news at a glance.

Hendaye, France

An American tourist was killed this week by a passing express train when she got out of her train on the wrong side. Dana Staller, 22, was traveling through France with her younger sister in a train that had manual doors on both sides. When the train stopped at the station, she mistakenly exited onto the tracks rather than the platform, and was hit by another train, speeding through the Hendaye-Plage station. That is the same station where, in 1998, a train ran over a 17-year-old girl who was using the pedestrian crosswalk. In response to the accident, French railroad workers went on strike to protest poor safety conditions.
