HOWE -- A 35-year-old Sherman man was hit and killed by a train early Friday morning.
The Grayson County Sheriff's Office received the call around 2:30 Friday morning about an accident at the intersection of Farmington Road and tracks south of Howe.
Officials say the engineer of the 95-car train heading south bound thought he saw a pile of rocks on the tracks, but when they got closer they noticed it was a body in the fetal position and couldn’t stop in time.
"We have to work all of these unattended deaths as a homicide." said Lt. David Hawley of the Grayson County Sheriff's Office.
Officials say they don’t whether or not the impact killed the man.
His body was sent to the Dallas County Medical Examiner’s Office to find out the cause of death.
