It took several days, but the Jessamine County Coroner has identified a man who was hit and killed by a train last Tuesday.

Coroner Michael Hughes said the victim was Charles Everett Carter, 55, of Lexington.

Investigators said Hughes stood on the railroad tracks just south of Baker Lane in Nicholasville just before midnight.  

Hughes reportedly did not try to get out of the way of the approaching train.

The coroner said the official cause of Carter's death was blunt force trauma.
