Man hit by train had no ID

A man hit and killed by a Red Line train on Monday night remains unidentified, according to the SRT Electrified Train Co (SRTET) which operates the line.

The man apparently slipped through a fence, ignoring danger and warning signs about trespassing, before being hit by an in-bound Red Line train between Lak Hok and Don Muang stations at around 10.45pm on Monday, the SRTET said in a statement yesterday.

The area where the incident occurred, about 500 metres from Lak Hok station, was off-limits to unauthorised personnel. The train driver immediately radioed the control centre to report the incident.

Police rescue and medical teams arrived at the scene to find the man dead under a carriage. The body was taken to Thammasat University Hospital for an autopsy.

The dead man could not be identified as the police found no ID. The company added the man was not a train passenger.
