Amtrak IDs Man Killed By Train

MADISON, Conn. (CBS Connecticut and AP) – A man struck by an Amtrak train in Madison has died.

An Amtrak spokesman says 52-year-old Glenn Cuban died at Yale New Haven Hospital after he was struck by a Boston-to-New York high-speed Acela train just after 7 p.m. Wednesday. Cuban lived in Madison.

There were 251 people aboard the train, but no passengers or crew members were hurt. The train was delayed about 90 minutes.

Shore Line East says local trains were suspended, but have since been restored.

Amtrak investigators are working with local police to determine why the victim was on the tracks.
