INDIANAPOLIS - Officials have identified the two women who were shown being run over by a train in a video that got national attention last week.
A spokesman from the Monroe County Sheriff's Office said misdemeanor railroad trespassing charges were filed Monday in Indiana's Monroe Circuit Court against 37-year-old Stacey June Smith of Bloomington and 34-year-old Wendy Gayle Timothy of Pensacola, Fla.
The women were reportedly tracked down using their license plate number, which a railroad company official spotted the day of the incident.
Timothy reportedly told police they were on the tracks taking photos, but investigators said they can't prove if that's true.
If convicted, they could face six months in jail and a $1,000 fine.
