MTA Awaiting Further Confirmation on Cause of Mamaroneck Man's Death on Train Tracks

A 91-year-old Mamaroneck man was killed on Saturday when he jumped or fell onto the train tracks at the Village of Mamaroneck station.


The cause of a 91-year-old on the Village of Mamaroneck Metro North train tracks has still not been determined, said MTA Spokesperson Salvatore Arena.

The man—identified as Robert M. Warner, owner of Robert M. Warner Association located on 1015 Nautilus Ln. in Mamaroneck—jumped or fell on the westbound NYC tracks at 10:03 a.m. on Saturday, Aug. 25 at the east end of the station, said Arena.

Although an MTA spokesperson initially told Patch on Saturday that the incident appeared to be a suicide, the agency is awaiting further confirmation via, “autopsy results and the completion of an investigation by MTA police," before they release an affirmative cause of death.

The train entered the station at normal speed, said Arena; no MTA passengers or employees suffered any injuries.

...The train entered the station at normal speed,...fast enough to not stop apparently. What is the legal speed into a station?

I'm not sure—I'll have to check with MTA and get back to you.

Never mind dear --- I already know ----The feds are dirty all the way to the White House and railroads do whatever they want and there are no such speed limit laws. Train speeds are only regulated by the weight of the track per foot (mainly so the tons heavier PRIVATE freight trains can run on our nickel) and screw anything, any town, anybody that gets in their way.
