The Scott County Coroner has identified a man who was hit and killed by a train Thursday afternoon.

The Coroner said Cory Ross, 21, of Georgetown, was walking near the tracks on Carley Drive near the Bypass when he suffered a glancing blow by the train.  He was killed instantly.

Investigators said the train's conducter told them he sounded his horn but that Ross didn't appear to hear the train coming because he had a cell phone up to his ear.

Toxicology results are pending.

According to Ross' Facebook page, he graduated from Scott County High School in 2009.

ABC 36 News contacted Ross' family.  They declined to comment.
