Man Killed by Train in Albemarle

An unidentified man was hit by a freight train near Sherwood Farms in Albemarle early Saturday afternoon, and was pronounced dead at the scene. The train’s crew blew the whistle and slowed the train when they saw that they were going to hit the man, but he did not move. The Progress featured a fairly grim color photo of the scene, showing the man’s body sprawled on the ground a few yards from the tracks. Eric Swensen has the story in today’s Daily Progress.
