NORMAN, Okla. (AP) – Authorities say that a pedestrian has been struck and killed by a freight train in central Oklahoma.
Police say the collision occurred about 6:30 a.m. Friday in Norman, about 20 miles (32 kilometers) south of Oklahoma City.
Investigators say that the man was fatally injured when he stepped in front of a Burlington Northern Santa Fe train. An engineer told investigators that he saw the man prior to the collision and sounded the train’s horn, but the man did not move.
Police found the man’s body on the railroad tracks. His name hasn’t been released. The train blocked railroad crossings at four intersections in Norman for two hours while police investigated.
