A Belle Vernon man was struck and killed by a train early Saturday in the Naomi section of Washington Township.

Township police are investigating the circumstances surrounding the death of Sandor Macz, 39, said Dr. Phillip Reilly, the Fayette County coroner.

Macz, who was pronounced dead at the scene shortly after authorities had been summoned at 3:15 a.m., died of blunt force trauma, Reilly said.

According to the coroner, train workers saw Macz attempting to rise from a prone position on the tracks, but he was unable to clear the area before he was struck.

Officials said the incident occurred on the CSX railroad tracks that border the Monongahela River near Naomi Street, off state Route 906.

Reilly said the victim's family identified him Saturday evening.

A manner of death has not been determined.

Toxicology results are pending.

Township police superintendent Ray Moody did not return phone messages Sunday evening.

The coroner's office said funeral arrangements are being handled by Eley-McCrory Funeral Home Inc., 334 Main St., Fayette City. Funeral director James Eley on Sunday confirmed that Macz resided in Belle Vernon.
