New York – Many questions are surrounding the death of 49-year-old Ellen Brody who was recently killed in a fiery commuter train crash in New York. As reported by WebProNews, Brody stopped her SUV on the tracks and was hit by a Metro-North commuter train.
Robert Sumwalt, National Transportation and Safety Board vice chairman, is quoted as stating of questions surrounding the accident, “The big question everyone wants to know is: Why was this vehicle in the crossing?”
Rick Hope, the motorist who was behind Brody at the time stated of what he witnessed in an Associated Press report, “She wasn’t in a hurry at all, but she had to have known that a train was coming.”
He reportedly motioned to indicate she had room to move backward, but said she moved forward on the racks instead. Hope further said, “It looks like she stopped where she stopped because she didn’t want to go on the tracks… It was dark, so maybe she didn’t know she was in front of the gate.”
An investigation into the accident is ongoing.
