Fatal Accident Delays First-Ever Brightline Train from Miami to Orlando
This morning marked a significant milestone with the inaugural train journey from Miami to Orlando. However, this historic moment was accompanied by a delay of 30 minutes due to a tragic incident along the Brightline route, as confirmed by Brightline representatives.
Regrettably, Delray Beach police have confirmed that a pedestrian lost their life after being struck by a different Brightline train traveling from West Palm to Miami.
This unfortunate incident underscores the importance of safety measures along the rail route as these new transportation connections are established.
