Man hit, killed by train in Baldwin Borough
A 35-year-old man was found dead on train tracks in Baldwin Borough on Wednesday morning, Allegheny County police and medical examiner said.
Michael Thomas Plocki was found at 6:13 a.m. in the middle of the train tracks in the area of East Carson Street and the Glenwood bridge. He was pronounced dead. The medical examiner did not list a home municipality for Plocki.
The crew of a CSX train traveling east saw the man lying on the tracks and notified emergency services, according to police. However, it is not believed Plocki was hit and killed by the train that reported the man.
Detectives are working with CSX investigators to get train schedules to determine when the man was hit by a train and the circumstances.
