NJ Transit police seeks help in identifying woman killed by train last year in Brielle



NJ TransitA composite sketch released by New Jersey Transit Police of a woman who was killed after being struck by a NJ Transit train last year.


BRIELLE -- NJ Transit Police have released a sketch of a woman who was fatally struck by a North Jersey Coast Line train in June 2008 and are seeking help in identifying the woman.

The woman had a light complexion, neck-length brown hair and blue/grey eyes. She appeared to be in her 20s to early 30s, weighed about 120 pounds and was about 5-feet-4-inches tall.

On June 15, 2008, train No. 4785 on the North Jersey Coast Line hit the unidentified woman at 1:38 a.m. in Brielle, between Manasquan and Point Pleasant stations, according to a statement by NJ Transit.

The engineer saw the woman, who was wearing a white t-shirt with a red long-sleeved sweatshirt underneath, white Adidas sneakers with black stripes, and blue rosary beads. She was also wearing a wooden religious bracelet and carrying a large brown tote bag with the words "New York" on it.

As the train approached, the engineer sounded the horn and activated the train's emergency brakes, but the train couldn't stop in time.

Anyone with information is asked to call (888) TIPS-NJT or (973) 378-6565 and refer to case # 2008-12490.

This sounds like the woman could have been suicidal or under the influence. People don't usually walk on railroad tracks at 1:38 AM.

I do think Brielle Jane was probably a visitor to the area because of the maps and the tote bag with "New York" on it. Where was Brielle Jane's purse with her money and ID? Why did she have winter clothing in the tote bag when the New Jersey weather in June is warm? She had two sweatshirts and one had a winter scene. She was at the New Jersey beach in June. Where were her shorts and swimsuit? She had a sun hat, but there was no makeup, combs, or personal articles except for the toothbrush. If she had arrived in New Jersey during the winter months, where was her coat?

The engineer on the NJ Transit train saw Brielle Jane and made an unsuccessful effort to stop the train. I am starting to wonder if Jane was running from something and naively thought the train would stop for her. It certainly doesn't sound like she had all of her possessions with her. Something isn't right in this bigger picture. If Brielle Jane was from Poland, she probably wasn't in New Jersey alone. Other people probably knew she was here. There are many Polish communities in central and northern New Jersey.

A red sweatshirt, a white t-shirt on top of the red sweatshirt, a white partial button down shirt that was wrapped around her waist, light green underwear, white socks, white Adidas brand sneakers with 3 black stripes. In her possession was a brown tote bag with the words New York. Inside the tote bag was a blue sweatshirt with a winter scene (snow covered trees and a cardinal), black jeans with a zipper on the left and right side of the waist, a sun hat with blue flowers, a black/white bandanna, and blue/yellow scarf with yellow flowers. The tote bag also had a toothbrush, cap, lighter, and area maps.

NJ Transit train kills woman who wandered onto tracks

Star-Ledger Continuous News Desk

June 15, 2008 at 10:59 AM,



A New Jersey Transit train struck and killed a woman who had wondered onto the tracks in Monmouth County early this morning, said Joe Dee, an NJ Transit spokesman.

Train No. 4785 on the North Jersey Coast Line hit the woman -- who has not been identified -- at 1:40 a.m. in Brielle borough, between Manasquan and Point Pleasant stations, Dee said.

The engineer spotted the woman as the train approached, sounding the horn and activating the train's emergency brakes, but couldn't stop in time. The victim wasn't near a station or grade crossing, Dee said.

Heading from Long Branch to Bayhead, the train had 20 passengers on board at the time. None were hurt, Dee said. Passengers were transferred to buses to complete their journeys, he said.

Regular service along the line resumed later in the morning.
