GOODLETTSVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — A person was killed after being hit by a train in Goodlettsville.
Nashville Fire officials say the train hit a middle-aged man Wednesday evening.
The incident happened near Church Street. Dispatchers communicated with CSX to help first responders find the victim.
"It's treacherous terrain when you walk around railroad tracks -- rocks, slippery slopes, water around the edges -- it's never good footing, never a good idea," said Nashville Fire Captain Michael Kelly.
