A man died after jumping in front of a northbound train at the intersection of Blackstone and McKinley, Sunday, Sept. 30.

The man, apparently in his early 20s, seemed to have intentionally jumped in front of a freight train shortly after 9 a.m. according to preliminary information provided by Lt. Michael Landon of the Fresno police department.

The man was pronounced dead at the scene by emergency medical services.

The train was stopped and the intersection was completely blocked on all sides.
