Dunkirk, NY (WKBW) - A train traveling through Dunkirk on its way to Chicago is involved in a deadly collision.

Dunkirk police say the train hit and killed a man at the Norfolk Southern Crossing, near Main Street and 9th Street, around 4:15 Sunday afternoon.

The crash left part of Highway 60 shut down in the area, while investigators tried to figure out what happened.

The deadly accident has left residents in the small city shaken up.

Dimary Maisout tells Eyewitness News "we're so small, everybody knows everybody. You feel like you know everybody, there's not a person you don't know around here."

Police are not notifying the victim's name until his family is notified.
