A man was found dead after he was hit last night by a Union Pacific train on railroad tracks south of the Arden Way overpass, officials said.
Train workers reported they stopped the train after hitting an unknown object around 10:15 p.m. and found the body of an unidentified man, Sacramento police Sgt. Andrew Pettit said.
The victim was described as a black man, possibly in his 40s. The accident is being investigated by Union Pacific authorities, Pettit said.
