CARLSBAD, Calif. - A freight train struck and killed a pedestrian near Buena Vista Lagoon early Tuesday.

The man apparently had been hit by a northbound Pacific Sun cargo train about three and a half hours earlier, the sergeant said.
The county Medical Examiner's Office will determine the victim's identity along with the circumstances of his death.
