LEXINGTON, S.C. (AP) _ A man walking down the middle of train tracks has been struck and killed in Lexington.
Lexington Police Lt. Matt Davis says the man apparently did not hear the Norfolk-Southern freight train at around 5:15 p.m. Thursday. A preliminary investigation indicated the man was clad in dark clothes and may have been wearing headphones.
Coroner Harry Harman says 22-year-old Phillip A. Stout of Lexington was pronounced dead at the scene from head and body injuries.
Harman says the train's engineer tried to stop but couldn't.
