Man on Foot Killed by Train

(La Porte, IN) - A man on foot was killed by a train this morning outside La Porte. Contact between the man and train happened at around 6 AM off Zigler Road, not far from the La Porte County fairgrounds.


La Porte County Coroner Lynn Swanson said the victim was walking to work from the nearby La Porte County Community Corrections facility. She identified the victim as 36-year old David Bayard.


Swanson said he may have been beside the rails when clipped by the train, but everything is still under investigation.


Right now, Swanson said there is no reason to believe the case was a suicide. However, officials took a blood sample for testing to determine if alcohol or drugs were in his system.
