A man was killed when he was struck by a train in eastern Kanawha County.
It happened just before 1:45 p.m. Monday on the railroad tracks near the historic Ebenezer Chapel near 98th Street in Marmet.
Marmet Fire Capt. Michael McGhee said the man was walking along the tracks when a westbound train struck him. The CSX train was hauling dozens of empty coal cars and was able to stop quickly.
Authorities would not release the man's name Monday afternoon.
There have been at least three incidents in that area where a person was struck by a train. A wooden cross stood near the spot where the man was hit. It was for 34-year-old Angela Selbe, who was hit and killed in May 2011.
Selbe was walking along the tracks to a family gathering to celebrate a birthday. She was talking on a cellphone when the train struck her from behind, police said.
Detectives said then that video from the train showed Selbe was deeply involved in the conversation and was not aware of the approaching train.
