Pompano Beach, Florida (AP) — A scooter rider died when he went around a low crossing gate and collided with a passing Brightline train. This is the latest in a series of deaths related to Florida-based high-speed rail services.
The Broward Sheriff’s Office said on Monday that a woman went around the gates of Pompano Beach and boarded the train on Saturday. She was declared dead on the scene. Her name and her age were not disclosed.
The woman was the 63rd person known to have died in a collision with a Brightline train since it went into service in mid-2017. The Associated Press survey shows that Brightline has the worst mortality rate per mile in the country.
