Authorities have identified the man who died after being hit by a train Tuesday as 66-year-old Hugh Avril Deadwyler of South Salisbury Avenue in Spencer.
Deadwyler was struck and killed by a Norfolk Southern train around 11:30 a.m. Tuesday near the 11th Street Crossing.
Salisbury Police Capt. Shelia Lingle said Tuesday the train was traveling south towards Salisbury at about 25 mph when it hit Deadwyler.
Lingle said train operators told police the man walked out from behind an adjacent train and lay down in front of the oncoming train.
“They couldn’t stop in time. They blew the horns several times and hit the brakes,” Lingle said.
