Police ID Amtrak Fatal Victim

The 19 year-old male that was struck and killed by an Amtrak train has been identified. 19-year-old Elijah Nathaniel Rivera has no fixed address. The crew of the Amtrak Crescent noticed three men on the tracks and sounded the horn at 8 a.m. Thursday. Two of them moved, but one remained sitting on a railroad tie and was hit. Police continue to investigate the circumstances surrounding Rivera’s death, while awaiting the official results of the autopsy and toxicology tests, which could take months.
