LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- A devastated family is sharing their heartbreak with WHAS11 after 21-year-old Chris Frazier was killed when he was hit by a train on his way home from work in Valley Station.

“I feel like I can't breathe. I feel like I can't walk.  I feel like I can't stand because every since I known Chris every breathe I took it was with him," Deidra Black, Frazier’s girlfriend, said. “I feel like I can't feel no more, can't feel no more.”

A young woman lost the love of her life. Her boyfriend killed walking home from his job at Burger King. The coroner said it was an accident. Frazier had on headphones and didn't hear the train coming at Valley Station Road and Deering.

“We was always working on getting better and I would ask him sometimes ‘are we gonna be ok?’ but this last time he was the one asking me ‘are we gonna be OK?’ My heart is gone it’s not beating,” Black said.

Black was the last to speak to Frazier when he called her just minutes before the accident.

“My heart is gone. Everything is gone. I don't know where it's at but it can't be found,” she said.

Frazier and Black just had a baby last month and have a 3-year-old son. She said he worked hard to provide for his family.

“He had his head in the right place,” Robert Frazier, the victim’s father, said. “Chris was my best friend and it was an honor to be his father.”

Frazier's father said his son put family first, and in this tragedy there is one thing that brings him comfort.

“He wasn't out here and somebody took his life. It was an accident, you know. I think I can accept it more than if someone took his life. I'm at peace with that aspect of it,” Robert Frazier said.

There will be a memorial service for Frazier this Sunday at 4 p.m. at Emmanuel Baptist Church in Louisville.
