Death By Train On The Rise In NC

Apr 12, 2013

The number of people dying by train is on the rise in North Carolina. In 2012, the Federal Railroad Administration reports 18 train-related fatalities statewide.  Just three months into 2013 and train fatalities for North Carolina have already hit 11.  Three were people in cars that ended up on the tracks.

The rest, says North Carolina Rail Division Director Paul Worley, were people on foot.
