Second Pedestrian Dies in Weekend Train Accident

In a second fatal train accident of the weekend, a 55-year old man was hit and killed Saturday afternoon. Police said Michael Pierson of St. Albans was sitting next to the tracks, and got up and tried to cross the tracks as the train approached. He stumbled on the tracks and didn't make it off the tracks in time. It happened just west of B street. About four months ago in the same area, another man died after walking along the tracks.
