Officers learn from the train conductor that a male subject had been walking WB on the tracks and the train also traveling WB on the tracks had struck the male subject. Valparaiso Fire/EMS arrived on scene and treated/transported the male subject identified as Nicholas Domer, (6/7/94) of Valparaiso to Porter Hospital.
