Accident Temporarily Halts Train Service

MANSFIELD (WBZ) ― A person was hit and killed by an Amtrak Acela train near Mansfield Station Friday afternoon, Amtrak officials said.

Officials said the person was hit in the area of the southern end of the train platform by train 2171 going from Boston to New York.

None of the 264 passengers on the train were injured. It's unknown why the person was on the tracks. Investigators are on scene.

Train traffic has been temporarily halted.

Officials tell WBZ commuter rail trains are being allowed to use another track through Mansfield Station, which will prevent passengers from having to transfer to buses. The trains are moving through the station at restricted speeds.

MBTA spokesman Joe Pesaturo said buses are on standby should they be needed.
