White Plains, NY (January 20, 2019) – Yesterday morning around 7:15 a.m., a northbound metro-train was making its last stop near White Plains Station when it was involved in a train accident with a pedestrian.
Allegedly, a man was on the tracks when he was suddenly struck by the train. Police do not know at this time how he ended up on the tracks.
MTA and Metro-North Police were called to the scene of the accident. They have not yet identified the man but said that he was alive when he was loaded into the ambulance to be taken to the medical center in Valhalla.
At this time, we are not sure of the condition of the injured man. North-Metro Police continue to investigate the circumstances leading up to the accident.
