ASHLAND – A man was struck and killed by a train in the Town of Ashland Thursday night, January 19, according to officials.

The commuter rail train was stopped at Cherry Street in Ashland.

The MBTA Police superintendent Richard Sullivan told SOURCE last night all inquires must go to “Middlesex DA Marian Ryan’s Office.”

SOURCE emailed the DAA’s office last night but no statement as of this morning at 9 a.m.

“Framingham/Worcester Line trains are experiencing significant delays due to police activity in the right of way near Ashland,” announced the Commuter Rail last night.

MBTA announced around 9;20 p.m. last night “One track near Ashland is open for trains to operate through at restricted speeds and Worcester Line trains are now able to operate through the area. Passengers should still expect delays due to police activity in the right of way.”
