Those weren't accidents, they were due to driver negligence. How much more do you think an elevated train would have cost?


It would have reflected the price 20+ years ago. These accidents will continue because traffic is always backed up and people are trying to make time.

Between Richard Street and the Caven Point facility, there shouldn't be *any* passengers on board, let alone 300!

Can't believe nobody listened to Yvonne

As far as I can tell/remember, this is only the second person to be struck and killed by the light rail *since it opened*. The first one was ruled a suicide. This one appears to be an accident, or at least negligent on the unfortunte victim's behalf. This is an incredibly low rate, especially compared to car traffic in JC.

Yvonne, anyone wanting to jump in front of a train car will do so whether it's elevated or not (if that's what happened). Anyone who does it by accident is proving Darwin. The HBLR probably wouldn't have been built if they had to build it elevated, the cost would have been much more.

While everyone will feel simpathy for the deseased, this is terrible for the conductor. He likely never saw the victim and now maybe st live with the guilt. Just terrible!

A man was fatally struck by a Hudson-Bergen Light Rail train as he was walking on the tracks in Jersey City this morning, NJ Transit confirmed.

The man, who NJ Transit say was trespassing at the time of the accident, was hit by a northbound train traveling between the Richard Street station and Caven Point facility at around 8:45 a.m., NJ Transit spokeswoman Nancy Snyder said.

Snyder said none of the approximate 300 passengers on board the train were injured in the accident.
