Victim Struck by Amtrak Train Has Been Identified
Donna Zoldan of Highland Park was killed yesterday on the Amtrak tracks in Edison, Amtrak officials said.
The woman who stepped out in front of an Amtrak train yesterday near Metropark has been identified.
Donna Zoldan, 49, of Highland Park was killed October 10 when she was struck by the speeding train at approximately 12:12 p.m. on the tracks near Talmadge Road and Route 27 in Edison, according to Amtrak officials. The area is about 4-1/2 miles south of the Metropark station in the Iselin section of Woodbridge.
The Amtrak train which struck Zoltan was travelling south from New York to Washington, DC, said Steve Kulm, Amtrak spokesman.
There were no injuries to the 220 passengers on board the train or to the crew, Kulm said.
"We transferred the passengers to another train," he added.
The fatality did not disrupt train traffic as much as it might have. Two tracks of the four-track area were closed for several hours and reopened by 3 p.m.
A number of trains experienced some delay, Kulm said.
