Waterford, NY (September 1, 2019) – Around 5:00 a.m. yesterday morning, August 31, one person was killed in a pedestrian accident involving a train on Clifton Street in Waterford.
The person had been attempting to cross at the Clifton Street crossing when the train suddenly collided with them, unable to avoid the unidentified person.
Traffic in the area was impacted at the scene of the accident. The train had to come to a complete stop in the tracks for quite some time, which blocked most of the northern part of the city crossings for vehicles.
A coroner was called to the scene and the pedestrian was tragically pronounced dead.
The investigation into the circumstances of the accident continues at this time.
We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of the deceased victim at this time.
