Hamilton County Sheriff's Office detectives are still investigating what led to the deaths of a young man and woman struck by a train early this morning.

Michael Hennen, 27, and Hannah Barnes, 19, were killed after they were struck by a Norfolk Southern train about 6 a.m., according to sources. Michael Hennen is the son of Hennen's restaurant founder Tim Hennen.

It's unclear what Hennen and Barnes were doing on the tracks.

The train crew sounded the horn before striking them, according to railroad officials.
