PUEBLO — Pueblo Police have identified the woman accused in a carjacking Thursday afternoon, and who was captured by police as she tried to run into a moving train.

Police say around 12:30 Angelic Lobato pulled a gun on another woman on E. 9th Street and stole her car. That led to a police chase that took officers up and down the Highway 50 Bypass and onto northbound I-25 before they used a PIT maneuver to stop the car at 29th Street.

They say Lobato then took off on foot, and officers caught her as she tried to escape by running between cars of a moving train.

Lobato faces charges of robbery and vehicle eluding, among others. She was not seriously injured.

Troopers from Colorado State Patrol helped with traffic control and reconstruction at the scene.

There is a large police presence in Pueblo after a woman may have been hit by a train while running away from the police.

Pueblo Police say officers may have tackled the woman before she tried to somehow jump into or through the train.

Pueblo Police say they were following the woman after an alleged carjacking.
