Police ID Two Of Three Victims Killed In Mansfield Train Collision
BOSTON (CBS) – Two of the three people killed when their vehicle was hit by an Amtrak train in Mansfield earlier this week were identified Wednesday.
Zachary Keene, 26, of Raynham and David Curry, 28 of Foxboro, were in an SUV when a train from Washington, D.C. bound for Boston late Sunday night slammed into it around midnight, causing the train to derail. A third victim has not been identified.
It’s still not clear where the vehicle entered the tracks or how it ended up there, but it was dragged for at least a mile.
Investigators say the victims were in a 2000 Land Rover.
It was traveling eastbound along the tracks between the Gilbert Street and Elm Street overpasses when it was struck from behind.
No one on the train was hurt.
