Albion College Student Killed By Train

Albion College Student Killed By Train

"It's just devastating. The nicest kid".

Kipp said that the investigation did show the incident was intentional after talking to the engineer conducting the Amtrak train and doing follow up interviews.

After further police investigation, Albion Public Safety Chief Scott Kipp was able to confirm to the State News that the train was traveling westbound when Zach was walking on the pedestrian walkway, and then walked in front of the Amtrak train as it passed by.

Winston was pronounced dead at the scene.

On the Albion College Men's Basketball Team roster, Winston is quoted as saying he chose to attend Albion because "it felt like a second home ever since his first campus visit".

Sophomore Zachary Winston was a guard for the Albion men's basketball team, averaging 2.6 points per game in just under fourteen minutes.

A statement addressed to the Albion College community from Albion College President Mauri Ditzler said "Last night, our family lost a student". He was deeply loved and will be deeply missed.

Cassius Winston and his Spartans are ranked No. 1 in the sport. "We want all students to know they are not alone. The student's family has been notified, but we are not releasing the name of the student at this time". At this time it's unclear if Cassius Winston will be playing in the game. The Britons played No. 1 MSU in an exhibition game on October 29, a game Izzo set up to get all three of them on the court together one time, but Zachary did not play due to his injury.

A message left with Albion's sports information department was not immediately returned.

The train, Wolverine Train 355, was delayed three and half hours.

A University of MI student was struck and killed by train, Friday evening, in Washtenaw County.

There were no reported injuries to passengers or crew members, Woods said.

Winston was the middle of the three Winston brothers, who are from Detroit and played high school basketball for U-D Jesuit.
