A man was struck and killed by a light-rail train late Thursday night. According to the Denver Post
, the man was apparently laying on the tracks at the Santa Fe flyover when he was struck by the train. Scott Reed, spokesman for RTD said,” The man was just over the crest of the flyover and the northbound train could not stop in time.” The accident happened at about 9:20 p.m.
Unfortunately, accidents do occur, and this has been the case with light rail in Denver and throughout the U.S. Although generally safe, obstructions on the tracks, vehicles crossing intersections and mistakes made by the train’s operator can turn an uneventful commute into a nightmare. According to Scribd.com
, between 1990 and 2000 there were a total of 4,624 injuries and 113 fatalities from light-rail accidents in the United States.
