DENVER (AP) - The 56-year-old woman who was struck and killed by an historic steam train in northern Colorado has been identified as Kelly M. Yarish of Brighton.

A news release from the Adams and Broomfield Counties coroner says Yarish died from multiple blunt force injuries last Saturday.

Investigators say Yarish was taking pictures of the passing 15-car Union Pacific train that was returning from Cheyenne Frontier Days in Wyoming when she apparently got too close to the tracks north of Denver.

The train had about 700 people aboard. The Cheyenne Frontier Days Train is an annual event hosted by the Denver Post Community Foundation.
