Iowa home invader cut in half by train after stabbing Des Moines man: cops
Lopez Christian Webster was killed instantly when he tried to cross railroad tracks while escaping after home invasion, cops said.

Justice hit an Iowa crook like a freight train, Des Moines cops say.

Lopez Christian Webster, 32, broke into an East Grand Ave. home on Tuesday and stabbed a man repeatedly before fleeing with the warning “move and I kill you,” KCCI-TV reports.

But his getaway was not so clean. Webster tried to hop some train tracks — as a Union Pacific train rolled through — and was sliced in half and killed instantly, the Des Moines Register reports.

The train conductor had no idea Webster, who tried to pass between two cars as the train was moving, had been fatally struck. The train was finally flagged down in Ankeny, Iowa, about 12 miles north.

“Not many times do we see accidents with that level of trauma, thankfully,” Des Moines Sgt. Richard Wallace told KCCI. “But I guarantee it’s something you’ll never forget in your lifetime.”

Webster allegedly barged into the East Walnut home and stabbed one resident in the neck, arms and chest.

The victim told cops he didn’t know Webster, but provided police with a description of the assailant.

Webster allegedly grabbed an unknown item before fleeing, telling the resident to stay put — or be killed.

But it was Webster who was ill-fated, police say. He died around 9 p.m. Tuesday while the man he stabbed is expected to recover from his wounds.

Webster reportedly leaves behind two children. He has past arrests for drug and assault charges.

I feel sorry for his kids and the victim, but not him. I wonder if he was on drugs at the time.

Yes he decided to try and get between two cars... guess it was a split decision.

The item mentions that he had "a good heart"..... but no mention of other visible internal organs. :40

I believe Thomas The Tank Engine is still receiving counselling?

Trains don't normally witness passengers falling apart.

I think Thomas has no conscience so it hasn't bothered him, just a little track"cred" :78 .
