FOXBORO - Nicholas Bertozzi, 32, of Foxboro was identified as the victim who was struck and killed by Amtrak's Acela on the tracks in East Foxboro Monday.

The incident was among three in two days in which men were struck on the rails in Eastern Massachusetts.

According to an Amtrak report, Bertozzi was on the tracks when the northbound Acela approached at 124 mph. The engineer sounded the train's horn and applied emergency brakes, but was unable to stop in time to avoid striking the man.

MBTA transit police, along with state police detectives from the Norfolk County District Attorney's Office and officers from the Foxboro and Sharon police and fire departments responded to the incident.

Several hours after Bertozzi was killed, a 27-year-old Norwood man was killed when he was struck by an MBTA commuter train in Norwood, MBTA Transit Police said.

The man was hit about 12:30 a.m. Tuesday, when he walked onto the tracks between the Norwood Central and Windsor Gardens stations. The train was headed to Franklin at the time. The identity of the Norwood man was not available.

On Sunday, a Lynn man was struck and killed by an MBTA train in Salem.

Police said Kyle Ramsey, 28, was struck at 7:45 a.m. by a train heading to Boston from Rockport.
