CHESTER, Va. -- A person was struck and killed by a train along the 3800 block of Curtis Street in Chesterfield shortly after 3:30 p.m. Tuesday, according to Chesterfield Fire and EMS spokesman Lt. Jason Elmore.


Jeanette Andrews, who has lived in the area for more than 15 years, said this isn't the first train accident she's witnessed.

"It's about the third or fourth one," she said. "Not pedestrians, but accidents with trains."

A woman survived a train accident in that same area back in 2007, according to an article in the Richmond Times-Dispatch archive. The woman was injured and her car was split in half after it got struck on the tracks.

Police are still investigating the circumstances surrounding Tuesday's fatal incident.

    Never the trains fault. A person or vehicle cannot be struck and killed by a train unless they are on or to close to RAILROAD tracks.
