Motor Vehicle Fatality Accident (Press Release)

by Traffic Division, Thursday, April 21, 2011, 02:00 (2430 days ago)

On April 21, 2011 Officers of the Abilene Police Department responded to a major accident in the 2800 Block of N. 1 Street beside the railroad tracks. A pedestrian was crossing the tracks from north to south at the time of the collision and was struck by a Union Pacific train. The pedestrian was pronounced dead at the scene. Due to the collision occurring on railroad property and not at an intersection, it is not a traffic collision and therefore is not to be considered as a fatality accident. The investigation into this death is on-going. The name of the deceased is not being released pending notification of family.
