Man Struck and Killed by MBTA Commuter Rail Train in Salem

The victim's name has not been released by police

Editor's note: An earlier story incorrectly conflated two separate train accidents in Beverly and Salem on April 10.

A man was struck and killed by an MBTA Commuter Rail train in Salem, Massachusetts, on Monday night.

Shortly after 9:30 p.m., Salem police said they responded to the MBTA train station for a report of a male struck by a train. Officers began lifesaving measures until paramedics arrived.

The male was taken to North Shore Medical Center and was pronounced dead a short time later. The victim's name has not been released by police.

State police assigned to the Essex District Attorney's Office are investigating, along with MBTA Transit Police.

A separate accident occurred in Beverly on Monday where an adult male intentionally entered the right of way and was struck by a train.

No further information was released.
