Rock Hill police say they found the body of a man on the Norfolk Southern railroad tracks off East White Street and believe he may have been struck and killed by a train.
The man is believed to have been trespassing on the tracks and was possibly struck by a train at about 4:45 a.m. Wednesday, said Mark Bollinger, public information officer for the Rock Hill police department.
Officers responded to the 1200 Block of East White Street at about 6 p.m. Wednesday and found the body, Bollinger said.
The York County Coroner’s Office said it could not release the identity of the man Thursday, but is attempting to locate family. The man’s name will be released when relatives have been notified, the office said.
There were no witness to the incident, Bollinger said. A passerby found the man lying on the track. The incident is under investigation.
Further details were not available Thursday morning.
