Details Emerge Regarding Croton Resident Struck And Killed By Train

Police say an investigation is ongoing, but have ruled out foul play.

On Tuesday, Thomas John Intrieri, a 19-year-old Croton-on-Hudson resident, was struck and killed by a train at the Croton-Harmon Metro-North train station, according to The Westchester County Coroner & Medical Examiner’s office.

The incident occurred at 3:45 pm. After a preliminary investigation, MTA police concluded that Intrieri’s death did not involve foul play, MTA spokesman Aaron Donovan told The Journal News.

Croton-on-Hudson EMS, firefighters, and police responded to the incident, but passengers were still allowed to board trains. Police activity disrupted trains on the Hudson line, resulting in delays of up to 30 minutes into Tuesday evening, Donovan told The Journal News.
