WAREHAM, Mass. (WPRI) — The Plymouth County District Attorney’s said a 36-year-old man and a 33-year-old woman were killed after being struck by a train in Wareham Saturday night.

Investigators say around 7:30 p.m., police were notified by the conductor of the commercial scenic train that two people had been struck along the Cape Maine Line in Wareham. The victims, who are only being identified by their ages and both from Wareham, were pronounced dead at the scene.

A preliminary investigation showed that the victims were on the tracks at the time they were struck. The conductor attempted to stop the train and activated the trains emergency braking system before hitting the victims. 

The train, which was coming from Buzzards Bay, was carrying 355 passengers at the time of the crash. None of the people on board were injured.

The incident remains under investigation by the State Police Detectives assigned to the Plymouth County District Attorney’s Office, Wareham Police and the MBTA.
