OCEANSIDE (CNS) - A pedestrian who was squatting on railroad tracks and covering his ears was struck and killed by a Coaster train in Oceanside, deputies said Sunday.

The man was squatting on the tracks with his back facing the oncoming northbound Coaster train, witnesses told officers. The man was covering his ears, as if to block out the sound.
