Police are treating the death of a man who was hit by a train in a Hamilton tunnel as misadventure.

The man was hit at 4:30am on Ward Street on Saturday.

A police spokesperson says it seems two men were out walking and had been trying to get out of the tunnel when one of the men was hit.

Police are providing assistance to the driver of the train and the victim's family.
