Authorities are trying to identify a man who died after being struck by an Amtrak train.
Chesterfield Police Lt. Matt Botset told the Richmond
Times-Dispatch that the man wasn't carrying identification when his body was found after the Saturday afternoon accident.
The medical examiner's office is expected to try identifying him.
Botset says the man was wearing headphones and had his back to the train as he walked near the Defense Supply Center Richmond.
Amtrak spokeswoman Vernae Graham says the man was struck by the Carolinian, a route that runs between Charlotte, N.C. and New York.
No injuries were reported among the 291 passengers and crew members on the train.
