Male, believed to be teen, killed after being struck by train in Newtonville

A male believed to be in his teens was struck and killed by an MBTA Commuter Rail train Friday night in Newtonville, Transit Police said.

Transit Police, Newton Fire Department, and EMS officials responded to the Newtownville Station at 8:45 p.m. Friday to find the male, Transit Police said in a statement. Transit Police said he is “approximately in his teens.”

Transit Police believe he was trespassing on the inbound track of the Worcester line, near the Mass Pike off-ramp, when he was struck. Foul play is not suspected.

Transit Police and the Middlesex District Attorney’s office are investigating the incident.


The death comes just a little over a week after a Boston University student was struck and killed by a Commuter Rail train on the same line near the Yawkey Way stop.
