      Man struck and killed by freight train in Missouri

      A freight train has struck and killed a man as he walked on railroad tracks in the east-central Missouri town of Wentzville.

      Norfolk Southern spokesman Robin Chapman says the train was headed from Knoxville, Tenn., west to Kansas City when the collision happened around 9:45 a.m. Sunday.

      The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported that the victim was wearing earphones or ear buds and apparently didn't hear the train horn.

      The name of the victim wasn't immediately released.
