Aman has died af­ter he was hit by a train in Auck­land. The in­ci­dent hap­pened on the cor­ner of Mau­rice Rd and Sta­tion Rd in Pen­rose at about 3.45pm. Wit­ness Greg Curry-Black said the man walked in front of a train at a rail­way cross­ing. ‘‘I saw the train go by with all the lights and ev­ery­thing flash­ing and a guy walked across, try­ing to beat the train,’’ he said. ‘‘The train was go­ing fast but [the driver] was do­ing ev­ery­thing he can - he had the lights and ev­ery­thing go­ing and the [bar­rier] arms were down.’’ The man looked to be in his 30s, Curry-Black said. The Pen­rose-One­hunga train line was closed for two hours.
