Pedestrian Killed in San Antonio, TX Train Accident by Eisenhauer

San Antonio, TX -- December 29, 2016, a man was killed following an accident where he was struck by a train while walking near Eisenhauer Road.

San Antonio Police were called to the fatal accident scene at about 12:00 p.m. at the intersection of Eisenhauer Road and the I-35 service road.

According to preliminary reports, a man, said to be in his 30s, was walking northbound just off the service road. As he traveled along the railroad tracks, a northbound train approached him from behind.

Reports say the train blew its horn multiple times as it approached the man from behind, and it also attempted to stop and avoid the collision. For reasons unclear, the man did not notice the train, and it hit him from behind.

The victim was dragged some distance and sustained fatal injuries. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Authorities have yet to suggest what factors may have contributed to the fatal incident. Investigators say the victim never attempted to leave the tracks and never turned around as the train approached.

Additional details are pending further investigation.
