Police are trying to determine why a man wandered into the railroad tracks in Downtown Fresno before being hit by a freight train.

The man was killed at the rail crossing at Ventura and G Street, just before 1 a.m. Saturday. The crossing arms were down at the time, and the lights were working properly.

Investigators do not believe the incident was a suicide.

They say the conductor honked the horn as the train approached the intersection, but the man appeared not to notice the train moving toward him.

The victim's name has not been released. The man has only been described as an Asian male in his 30's.
