Effort to keep trespassers off train tracks following deaths in New Jersey

(The following story appeared on The Star-Ledger website on August 3.)

NEWARK, N.J. Manville police are working to keep trespassers off the railroad tracks following recent fatalities on the Norfolk-Southern and CSX rail lines, according to a report in Gannett.

National statistics show this Somerset County borough is one of the leading municipalities in the nation in per-capita deaths on rail lines, according to the report.

In Manville's 80-year history as a town crossed by two busy freight railroad lines, police have estimated that about 20 people have died in train accidents or near the tracks.

On May 8, Manville High School senior Kevin Seit, 19, was struck by a train while walking along the Conrail tracks near Huff Avenue. In March, a man's body was found along the south bank of the river, east of the CSX railroad bridge and near Huff Avenue.

We call the run between Salem and Eugene "suicide ally" because of all the people we cream.
