According to police, Jacquelyn Rollins, 64, was parked on the tracks in a 2013 Chevy Cruze about 2:30 a.m. when it was struck in the driver’s side door by a northerly train operated by Peter Glidden, 34, of Carmel, Maine. Rollins was taken to Wentworth Douglas Hospital in Dover, where she was pronounced dead upon arrival, police said. There were no other injuries.

State police said the crash remains under investigation and ask anyone with information to contact Trooper Thomas Bednar at 223-8490 or by email at Thomas.Bednar@dos.nh.gov.
