Goodview pedestrian killed by train

GOODVIEW — A pedestrian was struck and killed by an Amtrak train Monday night in Winona County.

The incident happened just after 8 p.m. near the railroad crossing at 69th Avenue and Wenonah Road, according to Winona County Chief Deputy Chris Cichosz. An adult male in his late 50s was sitting on the tracks when a westbound train approached. The train's horn sounded "multiple times."

"He did not get off the tracks," Cichosz said. "We can't determine why he didn't get off the tracks at this point."

The man died at the scene. His identity was not released pending notification of family. The investigation is ongoing.

Minnesota City First Responders, Winona Area Ambulance Services, the Goodview Police Department and the Winona County Sheriff's Office all assisted on-site.
