Man Dies After Hit by Train

Struck by work train near Breakneck

A man was struck by a Metro-North work train and fatally injured on Saturday (Oct. 26) near the Breakneck stop.

The train was headed north when it hit the man at about 4 p.m. The man, identified as Gaurar Parkash, 32, of New York City, was airlifted to Westchester Medical Center, according to Meredith Daniels, a representative for Metro-North. The train had no passengers, she said.

Daniels said on Oct. 29 that while still under investigation, “all indications are the incident was non-criminal in nature and not an accident.”
