Pedestrian versus Train Accident

APD Case 17-6674
February 19, 2017 at 2:07 PM
E. 30th Ave & N. Peoria St 

  On February 19, 2017 at about 2:07 PM, Aurora Police and Fire responded to E. 30th Ave & N. Peoria St. on a report of a pedestrian being struck by a RTD light rail train on the R line.  There they found that a 35 year old Asian male had been struck and was unresponsive.  He was transported to a local hospital where he was declared deceased.

  The investigation thus far indicates that the male was walking east on the north side of 30th, west towards the light rail tracks.  The oncoming light rail train, which was in training operation with no passengers, was traveling south.  The safety equipment at the crossing was activated to include the arms that stop vehicular traffic on the roadway, pedestrian gates and illuminated signs with the international symbol for “Don’t Walk”.

  For an unknown reason, the pedestrian ignored the warnings, pushed through the gate and into the path of the light rail train.  The train operator immediately activated the emergency braking system but was unable to stop before striking the male. It appears that the male was hearing impaired and possible intoxication is also a factor being investigated at this time.

  The Aurora Police Traffic Unit will conduct the investigation in coordination with the Adams County Coroner’s Office, who will release the identity of the male at a later date.
