The family of a woman fatally struck by a train Saturday morning is mourning her death. Shatonia Spencer, 23, was killed by a Manhattan-bound Q train at the Prospect Park station while she was attempting to cross the tracks. A station agent said she stopped to ask where to catch the trains to Manhattan, but went down the wrong stairs. Instead of going back up and crossing to the other side, she jumped onto the track bed and was attempting to scale the platform wall on the Manhattan-bound side when she was hit.
Her mother, Vanessa, told the Post, "Shatonia was always impulsive and never thought things through." Shatonia was the oldest of four siblings, and worked for the Parks Department. Her sister told the Daily News, "She's someone you can't forget. I love her."
