— Kenly police said a man lost both legs Wednesday night when a train hit him.

Police Chief Josh Gibson said it was unclear why James McRoy, of Arizona, was on the tracks.

The conductor of a CSX train called police to report that he had hit something just before 11 p.m. He stopped the train, and, while searching along the tracks, he found McRoy.

McRoy was taken to a hospital. His condition was not available Thursday afternoon.

Train service resumed as normal Thursday morning.
