Blackstone Valley

PAWTUCKET, R.I. (WPRI) – A person was struck by an Amtrak train in Pawtucket Saturday, the second such incident in the span of just a few hours.

It happened a few minutes before noon on the tracks near the Conant Street bridge.

Eyewitness News found police and firefighters down on the tracks investigating, with an Amtrak Acela train stopped nearby.

An Amtrak spokesman confirmed that the train had hit a person on the tracks, but said that the person had not been killed.

The MBTA reported delays for several of its trains due to the activity in the area, and Amtrak said delays for its trains would be resolved this afternoon.

Just a few hours earlier, a man was struck by a train in the area of Pilsudski Street in Providence. Police said that the victim, a 26-year-old man, was expected to survive.
