WAYNE - Transportation and transit officials are considering whether they can improve safety at train crossings around New Jersey after three teenagers were struck and killed this week.

A Garfield teen was struck and killed by a train Monday while trying to cross the tracks near the Plauderville train station.

On Sunday night, police said three teens were walking across the Route 46 trestle when a train headed for a repair station in Kearny came down the tracks. One of the teens dove down an embankment and survived. The other two were killed.

The trestle is reportedly a popular shortcut for young people going to and from Willowbrook Mall.
