NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Nashville police say a 35-year-old man has died after being hit by a train.

Police said the conductor and engineer of the CSX train saw the man standing on a bridge in South Nashville as the train rounded a corner. But they told police the man didn’t respond to a warning horn, run or attempt to dodge the train.

The conductor said the train was traveling north at about 35 mph, and police said an emergency braking procedure was initiated.

Police said the impact knocked the man from the railroad tracks to the road below.

Police said he was pronounced dead at Vanderbilt University Medical Center.

Authorities are trying to locate the next of kin for the man, who police said was homeless.
