“Middlesex District Attorney Marian Ryan has confirmed the ongoing investigation into a fatal train strike that occurred yesterday in Natick.

On Monday, May 13, 2024 before 6:00 p.m., police responded to the area of Washington Avenue between Cochituate Street and Middlesex Avenue for a report that two individuals had been struck and killed by a Massachusetts Bay Transit Authority Commuter Rail train traveling eastbound on track two from Worcester to South Station.

Prior to the train strike witnesses observed the first victim, a 65-year-old female, in the area of the tracks. The witnesses began to travel down the embankment to assist her when they observed the second victim, a 59-year-old man, attempting to help her off the tracks.

At that point the witnesses left the area. Within a few moments both victims were struck. The preliminary investigation suggests that the victims were in a dating relationship and may have previously been seen in that area. No foul play is suspected.

This is an ongoing investigation being conducted by the Middlesex District Attorney’s Office, Massachusetts State Police Detectives assigned to the District Attorney’s Office, the Transit Police Department and Natick Police.”-Middlesex District Attorney Marian Ryan’s Office.
