SPARKS — Washoe County sheriff’s deputies are investigating the death of a pedestrian who was struck by a train on the east edge of Sparks.

Sheriff’s deputies say the train hit and killed the person who was sitting on the tracks just south of Interstate 80 near Vista Boulevard at about 6 a.m. Friday.
