A 39 year old Indian-origin man identified as Sreekanth Digala, a resident of New Jersey, has died in the United States of America (U.S.A.,) after a passenger train struck him when he was walking on tracks.

According to the media sources, the pedestrian was hit by an Amtrak train en route to Boston from Washington.  Although the incident happened on the 28th of February, it came into light recently, on the 7th of March.   Getting into the details, the victim Sreekanth was walking on the tracks east of Princeton Junction, when a train crushed him, leading to his on spot death.

Multiple train passengers took to Twitter to report that they were stopped for more than five hours after the incident.
According to the fundraiser, Digala, the only breadwinner of his family, leaves behind his wife and a 10 year old son.  Moreover, his 70 years old plus parents and in laws in India were also his sole responsibility.


Digala was described by the fundraiser as a hardworking and free-spirited individual who was “always willing to help”.  “Local Indian communities & TANA, Friends and Family members of Sreekanth are working diligently with the Indian Embassy authorities to figure out a way to complete the rituals and perform the last rites,” the GoFundMe page said.

The funds raised would go directly to Digala’s family for their future needs like housing, education, and childcare.  Of the USD 250,000 goal, USD 97,520 has already been raised three days after the campaign was started.
