Valdosta - Investigators think 18-year-old Shakeria Fleming tried to outrun the train at the intersection of Mills and Floyd Streets in Valdosta Friday night.

She and her passenger 21-year-old Kayla Brooklin were both killed instantly. The Buick Regal was dragged about a quarter of a mile before coming to rest at the intersection of Nardo and Gainer Streets.

There were no railroad crossing guards where the girls were hit, but there is a stop sign.

Capt. Brian Childress of the Valdosta Police Department says, "One thing I would like to get across to the public is that if your approaching a railroad crossing, whether its gated or not, if a train is coming, you need to stop and wait."

Investigators are still trying to figure out how fast the train was traveling.
