HIGH POINT, N.C. (AP) - Authorities say a 43-year-old man has been struck and killed by a train as he walked along the tracks in High Point.

Investigators say Lawrence Thomas had his back to the oncoming train and may not have heard it because he had headphones on.

Authorities said Thomas was hit around 7:50 a.m. Sunday and appeared to be walking to work. He died at the scene.
