Woman Struck, Killed By Commuter Rail Train In Beverly

BEVERLY, Mass. — Authorities say a woman has been struck and killed by a commuter rail train in Beverly.

MBTA spokesman Joe Pesaturo says the woman was trespassing on the tracks in a wooded area between the Prides Crossing and Montserrat stations at about 9:40 a.m. Wednesday when she was struck.

He says there are no stations or crossings in the area.

The inbound train to North Station was coming from Rockport.

The death remains under investigation and the woman’s name was not immediately made public.

    In fact, the notion that liberty means “freedom from obstacles” is often cited by central planners consolidating the power to coerce others.

    Note for railroad talkin’ head

    Trespassing would be climbing a eight foot fence, bagging the security cameras, hiding from the look out towers, and outrunning your security people who obviously hide well.

    Running a person down with a train is MURDER. Running as many down as railroads is MASS MURDER. Now give the evidence (untampered with) to real police and relieve yourself.

    If a person wants to kill themselves, they’re going to find a way. This is very sad.
