Iberia Parish officials say a man has died after being hit by a train in New Iberia


NEW IBERIA, Louisiana — An Iberia Parish spokesman says a 55-year-old man has been killed by a train in New Iberia.

Maj. Ryan Turner tells KLFY-TV (http://bit.ly/1QfMsvB ) that the man was standing between two freight cars when the train began to move.

The man's name has not been released.

He's the sixth person killed by a train in New Iberia in less than a month. Five people died after the car they were in was hit by an Amtrak passenger train on Dec. 22.
