A Beaver County woman hit by a train died from blunt force trauma, the county's coroner said Monday.

Susan Braykovich, 73, of Beaver Falls was hit by a CSX train near the intersection of 27th Street and Seventh Avenue at about 9 p.m. Sunday, said coroner Terri Tatalovich-Rossi.

There have been several similar incidents of trains hitting pedestrians in Beaver Falls in the past year, said Beaver Falls police chief Charles Jones Jr.

“We've had several incidents, maybe three or four. They have all turned out to be suicides,” he said.
