KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -

One person is dead after they were hit by a train late Friday night.

The investigation on Stadium Drive just west of Arrowhead and Kauffman stadiums wrapped up before 8 a.m. Saturday.

Police said, just before midnight Friday the engineer and conductor of a Kansas City Southern train saw a person walking near the tracks. They sounded the train's whistle to warn the person, but then heard a loud noise that sounded like the train hit the pedestrian.

The engineer stopped the train and called 911. When police arrived they found the victim dead just northwest of Stadium Drive and Manchester Trafficway.

Police have not identified the victim or said why he or she might have been walking so close to the tracks.
