SNOHOMISH — A man died after being hit by a train Sunday night.
The crash was in the 9900 block of Airport Way. At 8 p.m. a BNSF train hauling general freight hit the man after the train crew sounded the horn and put the train into emergency braking mode, spokesman Gus Melonas said. The train crew was not hurt and the line was shut down for more than 3 hours.
A spokeswoman for the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office said it is believed to have been a suicide.
The man’s identification and cause and manner of death were to be determined by the Snohomish County Medical Examiner.
