Detroit police say an Amtrak train struck and killed a man who was wearing headphones as he walked on the tracks.
Police say the man was killed Sunday afternoon on Detroit's west side. WDIV-TV says the passenger train was slowing when it struck the man, who apparently couldn't hear it coming.
Police spokeswoman Sergeant Eren Stephens says the man hasn't been identified and was in his 50s.
She says the train hit him from behind about 3:15 p.m. Sunday.
