Family Raising Funds To Get Victim Sent Home After Fatal Train Accident

(GDN) — The family of last week’s train versus pedestrian accident victim is now working to get their loved one home for his burial.  28-year-old Michael Allen Wheaton perished Thursday night when he was struck by a train while walking along the tracks on the 2700 block of Royall Avenue in Goldsboro.  He was just two days away from his 29th birthday.  Wheaton’s family is now trying to raise the $7,000 needed to get his body back to his home in Tennessee. 

A GoFundMe page has been set up to help Wheaton’s family with the sudden expenses.
