Brightline Train Kills Pedestrian Hours Before Launch

From The Palm Beach Post

UPDATE: Boynton Beach Police said that Melissa Lavell, 31, was fatally struck by the Brightline train Friday night.

Witnesses told police that Lavell appeared to be crossing the tracks after the guard rails were in the down position in an attempt to make it across before the train came.

Brightline’s first ride to Fort Lauderdale took off on time Saturday morning with a few glitches for customers who bought tickets at the station. But that didn’t stop the excitement.
