MTA still seeking witnesses in fatal Darien train crash
Published 12:11 pm, Wednesday, March 13, 2013
More than a week after Kevin Murphy, 55, of Darien was struck and killed by an express train, Metro North still has no eyewitnesses from the event, despite canvassing the platform in the morning, according to MTA officials.
The train that hit Murphy is an express train from Westport to Stamford and does not stop at the Noroton Heights station, according to Aaron Donovan, MTA spokesman. It runs between the 6:19 a.m. and 6:37 a.m. trains to New York.
Donovan believes there may not be as many witnesses because it was in between peak trains. Those who take the peak train, he added, may show up just before their train arrives at the station.

The matter is still under investigation, Donovan said, and could take months to conclude.
The MTA asks that any eyewitnesses to this incident call the MTA Police Department Communications Center at 718-361-2207 and ask for the on-call detective supervisor.
