Another person killed crossing train tracks Monday morning in Flagstaff

September 18th, 2017 at 1:00 PM

On Monday Morning September 18th, just after midnight, a pedestrian was struck and killed by an Eastbound train.

A Native American male of approximately 40 years of age, was walking south on the sidewalk on the east side of San Francisco Street. The train was Eastbound.  There are no crossing arms for southbound walkers.  We think he did not recognize that the train was coming, because he was described by witnesses as having his head down.  The railroad crossings at San Francisco and Beaver Streets were closed for about two hours for the investigation. Once we confirm the identity of the victim, and that next of kin has been notified we will release his name.   Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad tested the lights and horns after the collision and confirmed they were working.

This marks 3rd pedestrian involved train accident in less than a week. 3 days ago, another Native American male was killed by a crossing train at San Francisco and Route 66.
