A pedestrian is now dead after getting hit by a train in St. Landry Parish on Thursday.

"From what eyewitnesses have said is that the subject was deaf and the train engineer said he kept blowing his horn on the train and the guy never saw," says St. Landry Sheriff's Office spokesperson Captain Megan Vizena, who says the man was walking southbound on the tracks in LeBeau.

Vizena says they are not yet releasing any more details about the man at this time.
