A woman was killed around 5 a.m. Monday after she was stuck by a southbound train behind Yolo field.

Police removed the dismembered body of the woman at around 8 a.m. The body was found between train tracks.

The woman has yet to be identified, but is likely a middle-aged transient, according to investigators on the scene.

Police are still determining whether it was an accident or the woman committed suicide.

The train was stopped near the corner of Fifth and West Sacramento avenues, blocking all traffic but continued moving at around 9:18 a.m.
