Tragic, Fatal Pedestrian Accident in North Carolina

August 17, 2021

NORTH CAROLINA - A news article published on reports that two relatives of a man hit and killed by a train were attending the man's memorial at the accident when the relatives were hit by a light-rail train.*

The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police reacted to an emergency 911 call which stated that two pedestrians were hit by a blue line train Tuesday morning.  The accident occurred along the rails by Hebron Street and South Boulevard. 

Orlando Police reported that they found a 29-year-old man and a 20-year-old man unresponsive by the tracks, police reported.  Emergency medical personnel pronounced both of the men deceased at the accident scene.

Orlando Police stated that the men were walking along the southbound tracks when they were hit by a southbound train. After the men were hit, the train operator stopped the train.  Investigators believe alcohol impairment may have been a contributing factor in the fatal accident.  According to Orlando Police, all of the train's safety mechanisms were functioning properly. 

The men were conducting a memorial for a relative who was tragically killed in an accident with a light-rail train at the location.  The accident is currently under investigation.
