Man struck and killed by train

November 14, 2005

Douglas- Police say 37 year old Jose Luiz Romero was pushing his car across the tracks near South Gaskin Avenue late Thursday night when a CSX train began approaching.

The conductor says he saw the car and blew the whistle several times, but could not stop in time. Police aren't sure whether Romero's car stalled on the tracks or stopped before he reached the intersection.

Romero was transported to Coffee Regional Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.
