On Thanksgiving morning, a 61-year old Canton man was injured by an Acela Amtrak train en route from New York to Boston. According to local police, Jack Daniels was crossing the railroad tracks at Canton Junction on his way to Honey Dew Donuts when the train accident occurred.
Eyewitnesses said Daniels had just finished crossing the tracks when the train clicked him, skimming his back and ripping his clothes. The train accident victim remained conscious after the accident, though he was in shock.
Within a few minutes of the accident, rescue workers from the Canton fire station arrived and began assisting Daniels, who was later airlifted to Massachusetts General Hospital, where he was listed in fair condition. The Amtrak accident is under investigation by transit police.
