DPD says RTD not at fault for either death at Central Park station over the weekend

After two pedestrians were killed at the RTD Central Park station over the weekend, DPD investigators said one died by suicide and the other wasn't paying attention.

DENVER — The Regional Transportation District is in no way culpable after two people died at the Central Park station over the weekend in separate incidents, police said.

On Friday evening, a pedestrian was struck and killed by the A Line train at 5:30. The next day, at 2:10 p.m., the Denver Police Department reported that another person had been struck and killed by the A Line at the Central Park station.

Investigators determined that the Friday accident happened because the pedestrian was not paying attention while crossing the tracks. DPD said the other death appeared to be intentional on part of the victim. 

Over the weekend, RTD was also in the process of unveiling the G Line, a commuter rail meant to bring Arvada area residents to Denver. The line is two and a half years late but is taking riders through the various stops free of charge for the next two weeks.
