RODERFIELD, W.Va. — A McDowell County woman died Sunday, three days after she was severely injured by falling from a railroad bridge as a train approached.
State police said Ruthie Mullins, 24, of Raysal, was pronounced dead at Charleston Area Medical Center.
Mullins was on the bridge with Kenneth Neace, 20, of Roderfield, and Randy McNeely, 29, of Hensley, late Thursday night when a Norfolk Southern train approached. Neace was struck and killed and Mullins suffered severe injuries after falling 60 feet. McNeely suffered only minor injuries after jumping.
Troopers have said they plan to file trespassing charges against McNeely.
The bridge is located near Roderfield Tunnel.
