BILLINGS, Mo. — A southwest Missouri woman is dead after her car was hit by a Burlington Northern Santa Fe train early Saturday morning.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol says 51-year-old Deborah Brundege was killed in the collision at 12:05 a.m. near her hometown of Billings. The Springfield News-Leader reports the victim's 1992 Mercury was parked on the tracks.

The patrol says the locomotive engineer could not get the train stopped in time to avoid a collision.
