Train Accident Victim Worse

A Castle Rock girl who's been in a coma since her car was struck by a train two weeks ago is deteriorating.

Sixteen-year-old Maureen ``Missy'' Martin has been downgraded from serious to critical condition at Swedish Medical Center. Doctors had upgraded her to serious condition early last week amid signs of improvement, but her condition had worsened by the end of the week.

No other details have been released.

Martin's car stalled on railroad tracks in Castle Rock on Nov. 12. Her boyfriend was in a pickup truck behind her and tried to ram the car off the tracks, but he was unable to move the car out of the path of the coal train.

Martin is a junior at Douglas County High School.
