TAMPA — A 34-year-old Tampa woman was injured Monday night when she was hit by a train, police said.

Anna C. Jenkins was walking south on the railroad tracks near the intersection of Sligh Avenue and West Rowlett Park about 9 p.m. when she was struck by the front of a southbound CSX train, according to Tampa police.

When officers arrived, Jenkins was conscious and breathing and had a laceration on her forehead. She was taken to St. Joseph's Hospital for evaluation and listed in stable condition.

The train conductor told investigators he honked the train's horn when he saw a woman on the tracks and attempted to stop, according to police. The conductor estimated the train was traveling about 17 miles per hour at the time. Jenkins told police she did not hear the train because she was wearing headphones.

The address police listed for Jenkins is on Canopy Oaks Drive, about a mile south of where she was struck.
