LORTON, Va. (AP) -- Police say a man has been hit and killed by an Amtrak train outside Washington, D.C., after the engineer tried to stop but couldn't.

Fairfax County police say the train was heading from New York City to Charlotte, N.C., when it hit the man in Lorton, Va., just before noon Tuesday.

Police say the engineer blew his horn, but the man didn't get out of the way in time. It appears he was wearing ear muffs.
