A 59-year-old white male was fatally injured after he walked on to the Summer Street railroad tracks just before 10 a.m. Wednesday as a commuter rail train was heading southbound.
In a MBTA release, it states the man was “trespassing on the right of way,” according to WATD.
The man was pronounced dead at the scene, his name is not being released.
The train was parked on the tracks as Kingston and Transit Police detectives investigated what led to the incident.
Eleven passengers were stuck on the train for about two hours before they were shuttled by a local taxi service.
The accident caused delays at the Kingston station.
