MICHIGAN CITY, Ind. (AP) - A 26-year-old man was killed when he was struck
by a train delivering coal to a generating station in northwestern Indiana.
Authorities say investigators are trying to determine why 26-year-old
Randall Williams of Gary was on the Northern Indiana Public Service Co.
property in Michigan City. Northwestern Indiana Commuter Transportation
District Transit police chief Bob Byrd says it is possible Williams hopped
the train in Gary.
The Times of Munster and the Post-Tribune of Merrillville report Williams
was found dead on the tracks Sunday morning after a South Shore freight
train delivered the coal.
Byrd says transit police are assisting Michigan City police and NIPSCO in
