Woman being 'silly' hit by freight train

MARYSVILLE, Calif. - A 54-year-old woman was recovering in the hospital after being hit by a Union Pacific freight train south of Marysville.

Deborah Thompson told authorities afterward that she drank a bottle of whiskey before she wandered to the railroad tracks and tried to wave the train to a stop. When asked why, she told Yuba County sheriff's deputies she was just being silly.

Instead, the train hit her and knocked her 20 to 30 yards.

Thompson suffered head injuries and a fractured thigh bone but was conscious and talking after the accident.

some people just shouldn't drink. She'll get a Darwin award before too long.

My mother works for a oral surgeon and she showed me pictures of a bum that walked in front of a moving train. His face looked like hamburger.

He was drunk too, btw.

"Silly" just doesn't seem like the most appropriate word to describe her actions.
