State Police say a 60-year-old western New York man who was struck and killed by a freight train may have been photographing deer along the tracks.
Troopers say David Swinton of Byron was near the tracks in his Genesee County hometown around 10:30 a.m. Sunday when he was hit by a passing CSX train.
Police say Swinton was an avid hunter and apparently was photographing deer in a rural area near the tracks.
Troopers believe the train's operator wasn't at fault and was operating within the regulations.
The accident remains under investigation.
