The man struck and killed by a train at Mansfield Station last week has been identified as 47-year-old Mark Rose of North Dighton, Mass.

His obituary says he was born in Taunton and was married with three children. He served in the Gulf War with the United States Marine Corp and worked at the Harvard Medical School as the Operations Manager.

Mansfield Police are leading the investigation after Rose was struck and killed by an Amtrak train at the Mansfield Train Station in on March 2nd. Train 1772, heading to Boston from Washington D.C., struck Rose as he was attempting to cross the tracks from the Crocker Street side.

Because Rose was hit so close to the parking lot, dozens of cars near the tracks were impacted and considered part of the crime scene.

None of the 167 passengers on board the train were injured.
