LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) – Police are investigating a man’s death after he was struck by a train in the Clifton neighborhood Sunday.

Police say the incident happened in the 2200 block of Frankfort Avenue just after 7 p.m.

Investigators say the victim died at the scene.

It’s unclear what caused the accident and police have not identified the victim.

Traffic was backed up in the area for quite some time as the train was stopped on the tracks blocking traffic.

“We’re trying to get as much information as we can from any witnesses, anyone that heard anything, anyone that may know the subject or anyone that’s missing someone,” Officer Vadim Dale said.

Traffic has since returned to normal in that area.

Police ask if you have any information that could assist them in their investigation to call 574-LMPD.
