GREENWOOD, S.C. (AP) Authorities say a Greenwood man was struck and killed by a train after he walked around the crossing gates and tried to cross the tracks.
Investigators said 55-year-old Samuel Anderson died at the hospital a short time after he was hit Saturday.
Authorities say the crossing gates had come down as the train approached a crossing in Greenwood, but Anderson ignored the warnings.
The coroner ruled Anderson’s death an accident caused by blunt-force trauma.
