Maine’s Office of the Chief Medical Examiner has determined that death of a woman hit by Amtrak’s Downeaster train Saturday night was accidental.

Nyla Howard, 39, of South Portland, died of multiple injuries after being hit by the train on the tracks near Calvary Cemetery in South Portland about 6:55 p.m Saturday.

The medical examiner determined her death was accidental, and not a suicide, as appeared to have been the case on March 11, when a man was killed by a Downeaster train in Biddeford.

Howard was hit about a mile south of the Portland Transportation Center.

Amtrak officials said Howard had been trespassing on the tracks and was hit by a train running from Brunswick to Boston.
