DALLAS -- A pedestrian was hit and killed by a DART train early Monday morning.
Morgan Lyons with DART says the pedestrian was hit by the southbound Blue Line train at the Royal Lane crossing between the Lake Highlands and LBJ/Skillman stations just after 6 a.m.
"Initial reports are the man attempted to beat the train and run across the crossing as it approached," Lyons said.
No one on the train was injured.
The pedestrian, who hasn't been identified, was pronounced dead at the scene. A shuttle is being used to take passengers between the two DART stations affected.
