JERSEY CITY – A man struck by a Hudson Bergen Light Rail train near Richard Street on April 17 has been identified by NJ Transit officials as John Minervini, 45, of Lyndhurst
Minervini died after being struck by the train when crossing the tracks in an area just north of the Richard Street station. He was apparently walking the tracks when struck.
Although the accident tied up train traffic for several hours, none of the 300 passengers on the train were injured.
Although this is the first reported death as a result of people walking on the tracks, numerous people cross the tracks along the line that goes from Bayonne to Hoboken.
