Authorities in Blount County are investigating a train accident that killed a Knoxville man early Wednesday morning.
A CSX engineer called an emergency dispatcher shortly after midnight to report that the train hit a person who was lying on the railroad tracks on Morganton Road near Railway Drive and Cedar Church Lane.
After a brief search of the area, authorities found the body of Scott Allan Bowers, 54, of Knoxville.
Authorities have not said why Bowers may have been on the tracks.
Investigators are still working to figure out what happened, but they say no foul play is suspected in Bowers' death.
