GRESHAM, Ore. (KOIN) — A woman was hit by a MAX train and critically injured in Gresham Friday night.

Witnesses said Maricela Stewart, 45, was trying to go around the train at 162nd and Burnside and the driver did everything possible to avoid hitting her, but couldn’t prevent it. She was rushed to a local hospital for treatment of multiple broken bones and severe head trauma.

Investigators said Stewart was in a marked crosswalk but walked against the warning lights as the train was close to the intersection.
