Investigators suspect a dare is behind deaths in train accident

Apr 8, 2012

A youthful game might have been behind the deadly train accident in Westfield on Friday.

Authorities are investigating the possibility that three men being struck by a freight train might have resulted from a dare. All three men are in their twenties. Two of the victims were killed. The third is recovering fromĀ  serious injuries in a Pennsylvania hospital.

The accident occurred as the men were running along a railroad bridge in Westfield.

The train was fitted with a camera and authorities believe that the footage will help in their investigation.
