DENVER (AP) -- A woman who was dragged to her death by a light rail train in downtown Denver has been identified as 26-year-old Jessica Lubken of Denver.

The Denver medical examiner released the identity on Wednesday. An autopsy is planned.

Witness report seeing her staggering on the train tracks Tuesday. A train came to a stop but proceeded after the woman moved.

Witnesses say she walked to the side of the train and apparently tried to board but fell and got caught under it.
