Killeen News Now – The family of a 15-year-old Senia Aguilera, a Killeen High School student fatally struck by a train on Tuesday, wants the community to know who she was.

Aguilera was described as shy, bright, and having a beautiful smile, by her aunt Glenda Attaway.

“Her dreams were cut short. She was so excited to become a cheerleader in the fall. She had received information about cheerleading just prior to the accident.”

Killeen News Now – A 15-year-old Killeen High School student died when she was fatally struck by a train near the school on Tuesday.

The accident occurred just after 4:30 p.m. near 38th Street and Killeen High School. The Killeen Police Department temporally closed 38th Street. Traffic on Twin Creek Road was also blocked by the stopped BNSF train.

Armando Menchaca, a witness, said he’d picked up his daughter from a late release at Killeen High School when he saw the student attempt to jump over the train tracks as the train was approaching. She didn’t make it across in time. He described the accident as, “horrific.” Menchaca called 911 and attempted to render aid.
