Man on tracks in Dallas struck, killed by train

DALLAS — A transit official says a man walking on railroad tracks in Dallas has been struck and killed by a commuter train.

Dallas Area Rapid Transit spokesman Morgan Lyons says Wednesday morning's accident involved a Trinity Railway Express train going about 55 mph.

Officials did not immediately identify the victim, who was hit while near a trestle and dead at the scene.

Lyons says nobody on board the westbound train was injured.

DART and the Fort Worth Transportation Authority co-own the Trinity Railway Express. The system provides commuter rail service between Dallas and Fort Worth.
