A local man has died from injuries he sustained in a train/pedestrian accident that occurred downtown Thursday afternoon.
The Livingston Police Department received a call at 4:04 p.m. Thursday that a train had struck a pedestrian at the Polk Street railroad crossing.
Livingston police officers along with first responders from the Livingston Volunteer Fire Department and EMS arrived on the scene and located a male subject who had been struck by the train. The subject was identified as Gary Lee Brown, 56 of Livingston.
Brown was transported to CHI St. Luke’s Hospital with incapacitating injuries and was then air-lifted to a Kingwood hospital.
According to Livingston Police Detective Donald Dyson, witnesses indicated that Brown was sitting on the tracks when a southbound train approached but that he did not get off the tracks before the train reached him.
Union Pacific Railroad Police responded to the scene where the train came to a stop, blocking all downtown intersections during the investigation. The scene was cleared by approximately 5:56 p.m. and the train was allowed to continue to its destination.
This accident remains under investigation by the Livingston Police Department.
The Livingston ISD transportation department issued alerts via email and text message to parents, notifying them that school bus drop-off times would be delayed due to the accident.
