The Amtrak train, which was a mile behind him, began sounding its horn. This in order to alert the pedestrian that it was getting closer. However, the pedestrian was unable to get out of the trains’ way in time and was hit.
The deputies said the pedestrian suffered serious injuries in the collision. First responders transported him to a hospital for treatment and further evaluation.
