LIVINGSTON, TX (KTRE) -

Witnesses said the 75-year-old Missouri man who was struck and killed by a train early Tuesday morning was standing on the tracks and that he ignored the oncoming train and its horn, according to the Livingston Police Department.

According to a press release, the victim has been identified as Jesse Clark.

Livingston PD officers were dispatched out to the scene of the train accident at about 12:15 a.m. Monday, near the crossing of West Street, which is located off of North Washington Avenue. When they got there, they found a stopped southbound Union Pacific train.

When the LPD officers spoke to the train’s engineer and conductor, they said that they saw a white man standing on the tracks. They also said he appeared to ignore the noise of the oncoming train and its horn.

The investigation confirmed that Clark was struck by the train. He was pronounced dead at the scene by Justice of the Peace Darrell Longino.

The accident is still under investigation at this time, and an autopsy is pending.
