On Tuesday, February 5, 2019, at approximately 3:45 p.m., Haltom City Officers responded to a report of a train versus pedestrian collision just east of the railroad crossing in the 2000 block of Carson Road. Witnesses on scene and the train crew stated that a white male was jogging along the side of the railroad tracks in the same direction as the eastbound Amtrak train when he was struck by the passing train. It was unknown if the victim was wearing earbuds or headphones at the time of the collision, but a pair of wireless earbuds was located at the scene. None of the passengers or crew on the train were injured. The victim, a white male approximately 40 years of age, was pronounced deceased at the scene.

The victim’s identity will be released by the Tarrant County Medical Examiner’s Office once he has been identified and his family has been notified. The railroad tracks remained closed until approximately 5:30 p.m. which affected the Trinity Railway Express commuter train.
