Man killed on train tracks in Milford Friday morning

A man was killed in Milford Friday after being struck by an Amtrak train just west of the Milford train station.

According to Aaron Donovan, MTA spokesman, a white man was struck on the tracks just before 11 a.m.

The man was hit by an Amtrak train that had departed from Boston at 8:15 a.m. bound for Washington, D.C.

Donovan said the man’s name has not been released. MTA police, working with Milford police, are still investigating. Donovan could not say yet if the death was an accident or intentional.

Trains on the New Haven line were delayed as police conducted their investigation. One track was open, so while lines grew long, people were able to be transported, Donovan said.
