Man struck, killed by train in College Park

COLLEGE PARK, Ga. -- The medical examiner is still attempting to identify a man struck by a train in College Park last month.

The victim was hit and killed May 16 near Herschel Road and Roosevelt Highway. Officials believe the middle-aged white male was walking the track when the train struck him.

11Alive has been told that the CSX freight train blew its horn but was going about 40 mph and was unable to avoid hitting the man.

An artist created a sketch of the victim, who investigators believe may have been homeless. He was wearing a black parka, white sneakers and blue jeans when he died.

Anyone who can help identify the victim is encouraged to call the Fulton County Medical Examiner at 404-613-4400. Ask for the Investigations Section and reference case 15-0997.
