UPDATED: Person Struck by Train Monday ID'd as Foxborough Man
MBTA Transit Police continue investigating the incident.
Nicholas Bertozzi, 32, of Foxborough was trespassing when the accident occurred, MBTA spokesman Joe Pesaturo said today.
The MBTA Transit Police continue investigating the accident, Pesaturo said.
At 4:40 p.m. Monday, an MBTA dispatcher notified transit police dispatch of the accident a short time earlier in the area of 5-33 East St., Foxborough, according to the transit police report, which Pesaturo provided.
Transit police responded, as did State Police detectives from the Norfolk County District Attorney's office, Foxborough and Sharon Police detectives, and Foxborough and Sharon firefighters, the report states.
Bertozzi was pronounced dead at the scene.
The MBTA alerted commuters to the incident at 4:44 p.m. Monday.
The alert stated that the incident happened "between Sharon and Mansfield station."
However, Pesaturo said today it happened in Foxborough.
The accident prompted the MBTA to run shuttle buses from the Sharon station, at 1 Upland Road, during part of the evening commute. Trains to Providence also were delayed or cancelled.
Amtrak's Northeast Corridor service from Providence to Route 128 was disrupted as well.
