Fund set up for Richmonder killed by train near Powhite Parkway

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) -

A man who was hit and killed by a train near the Powhite Parkway over the weekend may not have heard the train, because he was wearing ear buds.

The family of 51-year-old James Coutlakis tells the Richmond Times-Dispatch he may not have heard the train's horns, because he loved to listen to podcasts while going for morning walks near the train tracks.

The paper reports that Coutlakis was a former president of the Boulevard Association.

Loved ones have setup an online donation fund to help assist with funeral costs and to pay for the children's education.
