Man Dies After Being Hit By Train

KSAL StaffJuly 29, 2013

Topeka police say a 50-year-old deaf man died after he was struck and killed by a train.

Topeka police Lt. Mike Cross says the man’s death Sunday evening in north Topeka is being investigated as an accident.

The man had stayed at the Topeka Rescue Mission in the past and apparently was headed there when he was hit. Two other men who were with the man crawled under a train that was parked on the tracks. They made it across but the victim didn’t likely because he couldn’t hear the oncoming train.

The man was still alive when he was taken from the scene but died later at a hospital.
