Pa.-bound Amtrak Train Kills Pedestrian In NJ

SOUTH BRUNSWICK, N.J. (AP) — Police say an Amtrak train traveling from New York to Harrisburg, Pa., fatally struck a pedestrian in central New Jersey.

South Brunswick police Sgt. James Ryan says investigators have not yet released the name of the victim who was hit Friday evening.

Amtrak spokeswoman Vernae Graham says the Keystone train left New York’s Penn Station around 6:30 p.m. and struck the pedestrian about 45 minutes later.

Graham says trains were delayed about 20 to 30 minutes before the tracks reopened.

She says there were no injuries to the train’s crew or more than 250 passengers.
