A Madison County man is dead after a train hit him.

The Coroner says George W. Hornsby Jr. was killed after being struck on the train tracks near Four Mile Road in Richmond.

Police do not know if Hornsby was walking or simply standing near the tracks. He was hit after 7pm Tuesday evening by the CSX transporter.

Authorities with the Richmond Police and CSX are working to determine how Hornsby ended up on the tracks, and if this death is an accident or suicide.
