LOLITA - A 52-year-old Lolita woman was in critical condition Thursday night at a Houston hospital after what authorities described as an attempt to take her own life.

Jackson County deputies responded about 4:30 p.m. to the intersection of Farm-to-Market 616 and County Road 429, where Dawn Marie Holmes ran toward a freight train and was struck, said Jackson County Sheriff Andy Louderback.

He said two witnesses said Holmes was trying to wave passersby down and was trying to get inside one of the vehicles but was not successful.

Holmes then saw the approaching train, ran toward it and was struck by the moving train, Louderback said.

He said Holmes was airlifted to Memorial Hermann Hospital in Houston and was in critical condition Thursday night.
