THIS JUST IN: Acela Takes Another Life


INQUIRER: A man killed last night by a high speed Amtrak train in Delaware was identified today as a decorated Wilmington fire investigator who was on duty when he was fatally injured. It is not clear why Fire Department Inspector Brian P. Waynant Sr. was on the tracks when he was hit. The State Police said they were awaiting a report from the state Medical Examiner’s Office to ascertain the manner of death, that is whether it was accident, suicide or undetermined. Foul play is not suspected, police said. A statement issued by the city said only that Waynant, 45, was on duty when he was hit about 9:45 p.m. by a southbound Acela Express train 3 miles south of the Wilmington station. The married father of two had been a Wilmington police officer for 16 years before joining the Fire Department in 2004, the city said. MORE
