The Amherst Police Department responded to 911 calls on Dec. 7 reporting a pedestrian had been struck by a train, according to a press release sent by APD Officer Brian Daly.

The release stated that officers located a 40-year-old-man near High Street with “significant injuries.”

“The man was treated by the Amherst Fire Department, and transported to the Baystate Medical Center in Springfield, for treatment,” the release said.

The APD, along with railroad officials, are currently investigating the incident.

As of 2:40 p.m., the train remained stopped in place, with no PVTA buses passing through the railway on Main Street. Police officers were re-directing traffic in the area, one at Gray Street and another at the bottom of the street.

By 3:40, the train had left the area, and cars began to pass through.

More updates will be added to this article as they become available.
