A man was killed after being hit by a railway work train in Wolf Point.

BNSF spokesman Ross Lane says that an initial investigation indicates the man may have been crawling around under the train while it was parked and was killed when it began moving. Maintenance workers called 911.

Roosevelt County Undersheriff John Summers says the victim was a man who appeared to be in his 30s. His name has not been released.
