A man died after being hit by a train Saturday afternoon in Beaver Falls, according to emergency dispatchers.

Beaver County emergency dispatchers said the man, who was not identified, was struck on Norfolk Southern tracks near the 15th Street crossing at around 1:10 p.m.

The conductor blew a warning whistle before the train, consisting of 102 cars and three locomotives, hit the man, said Dave Pidgeon, a Norfolk Southern spokesman. Pidgeon said he didn't know how fast the train, which was hauling mixed freight, was going.
