The first death occurred in Mercer County in New Jersey on Thursday morning when Amtrak's Keystone 642 train hit a person near the Hamilton Township station.
The second accident occurred in New York City when a 48-year-old woman was crushed by a subway train on Thursday afternoon. Police spokesman Paul Browne says may have tried to retrieve a bag on the tracks.
On Thursday evening, a man was struck by a New Jersey Transit commuter train near the East Orange station. And Amtrak says someone was hit about 9:15 p.m. in Philadelphia by a Northeast Regional train.
The accidents caused travel delays, but no one aboard the trains was hurt.
