tough on his family. Say a prayer for them. Imagine seeing your spouse off in the AM and then to hear this .

Jim T:

I wonder if he was on the wrong wide and tried to make a run for it? What a way to go. RIP dude

flannelboy:

were they "on the tracks"? Pushed? Jumped? There isn't much info here to conclude if the person was a pedestrian or not.

Sad and quite tragic, indeed.

mike_c:

It's not a pedestrian if they were on the tracks. There's a pedestrian bridge if you need to cross the tracks.

ENorwalk:

Sad accident but it would have been nice if the responders had blocked the scene so passing trains didnt have to see the remains on the tracks.

EFD:

Tragic accident unfortunately.
