Man, woman found dead on train tracks in Quincy

Two people were found dead along the Red Line tracks that run through Quincy, prompting a stoppage of all train service on Monday morning, officials said.

Emergency crews responding to the northbound tracks in the area of Wollaston station around 6 a.m. found a man and woman dead at the scene, according to the Transit Police Department.

An investigation indicated that the victims trespassed and intentionally laid between the outside running rail and third rail, Transit police added.

Red Line service was suspended in both directions at 6:30 a.m. and delays remained in place for several hours. The MBTA said that regular service had resumed shortly before 1 p.m.

A heavy police presence could be seen in the area of Wollaston station as commuters waited to board shuttle buses that replaced train service between JFK/UMass and Braintree stations. The commuter rail also accommodated passengers at Braintree, Quincy Center, and JFK/UMass.

Transit police detectives and the Norfolk District Attorney’s Office are leading an investigation.

There were no additional details available.
