Metro-North: No Evidence Train Struck a Person

Metro-North officials said today a train crew reported striking something on the tracks of the Saugatuck River Bridge where Westport police said Annette White was hit by a train Thursday.  But they did not notify anyone because they did not find any evidence it was a person.

Westport police confirmed they had not been notified by Metro-North and only began investigating the possibility that a train struck White after a passenger on the train alerted them Monday morning to a 20-minute stop on the bridge at 6:53 p.m. on Thursday.

Police said White, a 46-year-old Maine native who had been living at an Owenoke Park address since July, was apparently struck by the westbound train as she walked in the dark on the side opposite a narrow pedestrian walkway.

Her body was found floating in the Saugatuck River on Friday and an autopsy showed signs of blunt impact injuries similar to those caused by being struck by a vehicle or falling from a great height.
