Body Identified After Fatal Train Accident Downtown

Posted By on Fri, Aug 8, 2014 at 4:30 PM

Robert E. Cole, 56, was struck by a train near North Seventh Avenue and East Seventh Street early Friday morning, according to a press release from Tucson Police. Officers from Operations Division Downtown arrived at the intersection around 5:26 a.m., and discovered that Cole deceased at the scene. Detectives from the Traffic Investigations unit have determined that Cole was crossing the railroad tracks and was hit by the westbound train. The next of kin have been notified, according to TPD.

This is the second fatality near this train crossing intersection in two months. 25-year-old man was hit on Wednesday, July 10. Hopefully, someone at the City or DOT notices and makes some changes to stop this from happening.
