TUCSON- Tucson police are on scene of a deadly train accident involving a pedestrian. Officers say a man was hit and killed at 7th Ave and 7th Street around 5:30am. No word yet on the man's identity but police say he was trying to beat the train across the track.
There are closures in the area so avoid St. Mary's near Granada if possible. As for alternates, try University and don't use the Eastbound exit from I-10. Speedway can be an alternate for that.
Officers expect to be on scene for several hours so stay with News 4 Tucson on air, online and on your mobile device for the latest information.
