ARCADIA, La. (AP) - Police say a man who was listening to an iPod as he walked along a stretch of railroad tracks in Arcadia died when he failed to move out of the path of a train.
Police Chief Victor Rogers identified the victim as 29-year-old Ray Andrew White of Arcadia. White died at the scene on Monday.
Rogers tells The Times that three witnesses told police the train sounded its horn but White appeared not to hear it. He said the engineer hit the emergency brakes but was unable to avoid an impact with White.
