Teenager hit and killed by train in South Bend

Officials say a teenager is dead after they were hit by a train this morning in South Bend.

Personnel with the Norfolk Southern Railroad called in that a train hit a person around 8:45 a.m. on Friday. The collision reportedly took place just south of Lincolnway East where the train tracks intersect with Robinson Street.

A spokeswoman for the South Bend Police Department said the person killed in the crash was a teenage student, though as of Friday afternoon, officials have not identified the individual.

Police say Norfolk Southern is in charge of the investigation, but the department says the preliminary indication is that the incident was a "tragic accident."
