A man died early Saturday morning after being struck by a train in Marysville, according to news reports.

The man, whose name and age was not reported, was killed by the train around 12:20 a.m. in the 1300 block of State Avenue, according to news reports.

The Marysville Fire District crew responded to the incident after the report of the train versus pedestrian accident, said Kristen Thorstenson, Public Information Officer/Education Specialist for the MFD to news reports.

It is unclear whether drugs or alcohol played a role in the fatal pedestrian accident.

As an Everett personal injury attorney, it saddens me to hear about this fatal pedestrian accident involving a train. My condolences go out to this man’s friends and family in this difficult time. I hope this tragic case reminds people to never cross train tracks at unmarked areas, even when they think they aren’t in any danger. Trains are very dangerous and pedestrians should never walk along the tracks or near them. I hope investigators are able to determine how this pedestrian accident happened to ensure an accident like this never happens in the future.
