Man hit by MBTA Operated Commuter Rail Train in Worcester

Our Boston attorneys have recently seen that a 55-year-old resident of Millbury was hit by a MBTA commuter rail train yesterday afternoon. The accident occurred on the tracks near 61 Frank Street in Worcester.

The commuter rail train left Boston at 2:40 p.m. and was traveling at approximately 40 mph when it struck the pedestrian.

Luckily, one of the passengers on the train was a registered nurse. The nurse provided first aid to the pedestrian until Worcester EMS arrived. The injured man was immediately taken to UMass Memorial Medical Center – University Campus for treatment.

Early reports indicate that the man, whose name has not been released by the police, has suffered head, chest and leg injuries as the result of the collision. The man is currently in serious condition.

The attorneys at the law firm of Altman & Altman have successfully handled hundreds of MBTA injury cases. As a result of our experience, our lawyers are more properly equipped to handle this specific type of case. Please contact our office for a free initial consultation.
