It was a sad scene in Hartford, Vermont Friday as a local teen was killed and another man seriously injured when the two were struck by a passenger train while walking on a nearby railroad trestle.
According to a press release from Hartford police, an Amtrak Vermonter train carrying 55 passengers struck the two shortly after 11 a.m. Friday morning, sending one man into the White River 40-feet below, and the other into the middle of the trestle.
Authorities pulled 18-year-old Nicolas Siciliano from the river and performed CPR at the scene, but the Windsor teen was later pronounced dead at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center. The second man, whose identity has not yet been released, is still undergoing treatment for what authorities call significant injuries.
The train, which was en route to New York City and Washington DC from St. Albans Vermont, was delayed for nearly three hours while rescue crews and investigators worked to clear the scene.
