Delaware man hit by train

An architect employed with a Kansas City firm contracted to work for Amtrak was struck and killed by an Amtrak train in Providence last week. The man who died is said to have been working alongside three other men, one of whom was seriously injured. The National Transportation Safety Board is investigating the railroad accident. This report estimates that a full Federal investigation will take up to one year to complete. So far reports indicate that the curvature of the railroad track may have contributed to this train accident. Amtrak has reported that the train was moving slower than the posted 55 mph limit.
