The conductor of a scenic train in Colorado was fatally injured this weekend when she fell off the locomotive, according to reports.

The Fremont County Sheriff's Office identified the conductor as Canon City woman Leslie Cacy.

Cacy, 28, may have been a new addition to the Royal Gorge Railroad Scenic Train Staff. While her name does not appear on the company's website, their most recent Instagram photo identifies a woman in the picture as a "trainee" conductor named Leslie.
