On Wednesday, Feb. 9, an employee died after an accident in BNSF's Globeville yard, located in downtown Denver.

RT&S reached out to BNSF for their statement on the accident and fatality, and we received this from a spokesman:

“On February 9, a BNSF employee was fatally injured while working in the Globeville rail yard in Denver, Colorado. The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) will be leading the investigation. The entire BNSF family is saddened by this incident and we extend our deepest sympathy and thoughts to the family and loved ones of the employee involved.”
