BRUNSWICK, Ga. (AP) - The Georgia Bureau of Investigation says there's no evidence of foul play in the death of a Florida woman who fell from an Amtrak train traveling through Georgia.

The woman, 63-year-old Barbara Arteta of New Smyrna Beach, was found dead Sept. 9 along the tracks near U.S. 301 south of Jesup.

The GBI said Monday that Arteta, who had Parkinson's disease, died of injuries she received when she fell from the train. The GBI says the train was traveling at least 60 mph and accelerating up to 70 mph.

Agents could not determine whether Arteta fell or jumped.

The investigation showed no evidence Arteta went out through a window that was found open.

Arteta's husband, Eugene, reported her missing to an attendant, then to police in Sanford, Fla.
