Man Struck And Killed By Amtrak Train In Culpeper

A 19 year-old male was struck and killed by an Amtrak train early Thursday in Culpeper. It happened shortly after 8 a.m. and involved the Amtrak Crescent. The crew noticed three men on the tracks and sounded the horn. Two of them moved, but one remained sitting on a railroad tie and he was hit. It happened about 150 yards north of the intersection of Fairfax Street and Wine Street in Culpeper. The name of the victim is not being released at this time.
