Authorities on Monday identified the man fatally struck by a train in Darien last week as a New Canaan resident.
John Hickey, 50, died after an eastbound train struck him near Noroton Heights station at approximately 7:35 p.m. Thursday, Metro-North Railroad spokesman Aaron Donovan told NewCanaanite.com in an email.
It isn’t clear why he was on the tracks. The Metropolitan Transit Authority Police and Darien Police Department are investigating.
The New Haven-bound train had left Grand Central Terminal at 6:49 p.m.
