Person Struck, Killed by Amtrak Train in Milford

The train left Boston and was heading to Washington, DC.



    A person was struck and killed by an Amtrak train just before 11 a.m. on Friday in Milford, according to officials from Metropolitan Transit Association.

    The train involved left Boston at 8:15 a.m. and was headed to Washington D.C., due to arrive at 4:15 p.m.
    Passengers on the train were transferred to a Metro-North train, Aaron Donovan, a spokesperson for MTA, said.  

    The pedestrian was hit just west of the Milford station.

    Amtrak officials said 344 passengers were on the train and no one who was onboard was injured.

    Trains are getting through on one open track. Travelers should expect delays.

    Metro North is experiencing about 10 minute delays while police investigate.

    Just after 11 a.m., Metro-North sent out an alert saying the New Haven Line Service is delayed near Milford due to police activity.

    Amtrak posted on its Web site that there is a service disruption on the 171 Northeast Regional.
