Noroton Heights Pedestrian Killed By Train Is Identified
DARIEN, Conn. (AP) _ Metro-North officials have identified a man who was struck and killed by a Manhattan-bound train at the Noroton Heights station in Darien.
Officials say 55-year-old Kevin Murphy was the person who died Monday morning. The accident happened just after 6:30 a.m. and caused rail service delays of up to 15 minutes in the area.
Authorities weren’t sure where Murphy lived. Public records show a man of the same name and age with an address in Darien.
Metro-North police are trying to determine why Murphy was on the tracks.
He was struck by the 5:38 a.m. train out of New Haven. People on the train said the accident site was gruesome and they had to switch to another train.
