Austin Police are investigating a pedestrian death this morning after a man was hit and killed by a train.

Police say they were called at 12:30 a.m. to MLK Jr. Blvd. and Alexander Ave. That’s where they say a person was hit by a southbound freight train.

The conductor, who called 911, says he saw the man try to run across the tracks.

Police tell KEYE TV that all the safety features were working at the time of the accident.

The victim’s name has not been released.

While police investigate, MLK Jr. is shutdown in both directions.
