Navasota Assistant City Manager Shawn Myatt told the paper: "Burlington Northern had a train on their track coming and she turned back to the east to walk across the Union Pacific track and walked right in front of the Union Pacific train that was heading south."
Hakamie Stevenson, Miss Thomson's mother, told The Eagle that her daughter, who went by the nickname 'Zanie', had put her studies on hold to pursue a career in modelling.
A GoFundMe page has been launched to help raise money for her funeral.
