Pedestrian is dead after a freight train accident

The Mesa County Sheriff's Office says a man is dead after being hit by a train.

It happened around 7:30 p.m. Monday night, just west of the 32 Road overpass.

Our crews on scene say it was a freight train-- not a passenger train-- that hit the man.

No word on the identity of the man killed or what led to the accident.
