A man walking his dog along some railroad tracks in Ventura County was killed by an Amtrak passenger train.

It happened just after 2:30 yesterday afternoon, as a man was walking northbound on the tracks near La Conchita. The crew of a northbound Amtrak train saw the man, and blew its horn multiple times, but the man didn’t get off the tracks in time.

The train tried to make an emergency stop, but was unable to in time. The name of the man hasn’t been released yet. No one on board the train was hurt.
