Longview Man Hit By Train

It's still a mystery why a Longview man was on a train track which led to his arm being severed by an Amtrak train.

Police say 33 year old Jonathan Barnes was walking along the train tracks at Cotton Street around 7 o'clock last night when he was struck.

The Texas Eagle was headed to Longview, then to Chicago. Barnes was taken to Parkland Hospital in Dallas.

Officers were not able to speak with Barnes before he was taken to the hospital to find out exactly what happened.
