A man is dead after being hit by a train in Downtown Fresno.

The crash happened just before 5 p.m. Saturday near G Street and Kern.

Police now say two freight trains were heading in opposite directions when one of them hit a pedestrian.

Investigators say it appears the man started to cross the tracks after the first train passed and didn't see the second train coming.

Officers tell Action News the crossing arms were down when the man tried crossing the tracks. His identity has not yet been released.
