Police have identified the male who was struck and killed by a train on Friday as Manuel Jose Garcia 23 of Lebanon.
Garcia was walking on the railroad tracks and was struck and killed by a train in Lebanon. It happened around 9:42am Friday morning on the railroad tracks just west of 7th Street. Police found the victim, described only as a male, lying in the gravel west of 7th Street. EMS personnel determined the victim was deceased. A witness who was sitting in his car saw Garcia for several seconds before the train hit him and told police he was walking on the tie butts that extend out from under the steel rail.
An eastbound train approached the victim from behind, sounding its horn. The front engine car hit him. The witness told police no one else was in the area.
Anybody who may have witnessed the accident is asked to contact the Lebanon City Police Department.
