Man Killed By Train
November 4, 2011
A man died Thursday night after being struck by a train in Escambia County.
Pensacola Police Department Lt. Steve Ordonia said a preliminary investigation indicates a northbound train struck the man at a time that has not yet been determined. Police were notified after an employee on a southbound train noticed the body on the tracks and called 911 around 7:45 p.m Thursday.
Ordonia said it is not known why the man may have been on the tracks. The identity of the white male have not yet been released.
The incident occurred on the railroad tracks that run parallel to Scenic Highway just south of Langley Avenue. Police are working with CSX employees on the investigation.
