On Monday afternoon, a 27-year-old Billerica man died after being hit by a commuter rail train in Wilmington. Authorities suspended commuter rail service between Anderson RTC and North Billerica stations following the train crash. Shuttle buses transported passengers between stations during the mid-afternoon.
The tracks under the Route 129 bridge separate a residential area from shops and restaurants. Residents say many pedestrians use that area as a shortcut and that it could be a safety concern.
The fatal train accident remains under investigation. MBTA officials did not release the name of the victim pending notification of his family.
