Fatal pedestrian-train accident tape now in Fla.

Moses’ toxicology results coming in 2-3 weeks, coroner reports

CORBIN — By Jeff Noble / Staff Writer

The tape of a fatal accident involving a pedestrian and a CSX freight train last week is now at a railroad company headquarters in Jacksonville, Fla.

In addition, Whitley County Coroner Andy Croley said the toxicology report on the accident victim — Jason L. Moses, 36, of Williamsburg — will come in about two-to-three weeks.

On Friday afternoon, Moses was killed after being hit by the train at the railroad crossing at the corner of 2nd and Elm streets in Williamsburg.

Croley said Moses died at the scene of multiple injuries he sustained after being hit by the train. The accident occurred around 5:30 p.m.

The coroner pronounced Moses dead 20 minutes later.

“They’ve pulled the tape from the train and they sent it to Jacksonville to CSX headquarters. We’re just waiting to apply everything together. The Williamsburg Police Department is waiting on the information as well. Once we get that, the investigation can go forward. … At this point, I don’t suspect any alcohol or drugs will be a factor,” Croley said.

Officials said Friday the CSX train had video of the accident, and would review the video this week.

A CSX crew was also at the accident scene doing their own investigation.

Moses’ body was sent to Frankfort for an autopsy Saturday.

Williamsburg Police Chief Wayne Bird reported Friday that Moses was hit at the railroad crossing.

“The conductor saw him cross, and he thought the man had plenty of time to cross, but he turned completely away from the train, turned his head, and kept walking,” he said at the time.

“The conductor did everything he could do,” Bird added, indicating no charges would be filed against the conductor and the train’s crew.
