Stony Point Man Hit and Killed By Train

A Stony Point man was killed as he was running near the tracks Friday morning.

Anthony Quevedo, 29, of Stony Point was struck by a train just North of East Railroad Avenue in West Haverstraw at around 11:46 am.

Witnesses say Quevedo was seen running near the tracks wearing headphones and apparently didn’t hear or ignored the horn from the train.

Police continue to investigate Quevedo’s death and believe the headphones may have been specially designed to cancel out background noise.

Police said he was pronounced dead at the scene.
