Man struck by MBTA Red Line — third death this summer

Service on the Red Line was suspended for much of Saturday morning after a 30-year-old Asian man was struck and killed at Broadway station. The Boston Herald reported that he was struck by an inbound train at about 8:30 a.m. His death is still under investigation by the transit police.

This is the third death on the Red Line this summer. On the morning of July 6, a male in his 30s was struck by the train at Davis Square, halting service until mid-afternoon. He was pronounced dead when he arrived at the hospital. In an unrelated incident, an 80-year-old woman was struck by a train at Kendall/MIT station on the afternoon of July 21. The Boston Globe reported that the woman “did not fall, nor was she pushed” onto the tracks. Service was significantly delayed for about an hour as a result of the incident.
