BILOXI, Miss. (AP) – There was a deadly accident on the railroad tracks in Biloxi late Thanksgiving Day.

Harrison County Coroner Gary Hargrove tells WLOX-TV that a person was walking on the tracks and was hit by an approaching train. It happened around midnight.

The railroad crossing intersections at Eisenhower Drive and DeBuys Road were blocked for several hours.

The victim’s identity has not been released.

A message left Friday with Biloxi Police was not immediately returned.
