A man was struck and killed by a freight train early Thursday in Oak Grove, the Anoka County Sheriff’s Office said.
Deputies were called to the crash west of Hwy. 65 and a quarter-mile south of 229th Avenue NW. just before 4 a.m., a dispatcher with the Sheriff’s Office said.
“We can confirm this was a fatal,” the dispatcher said.
The name of the victim has not been released, but a spokesman for the Sheriff’s Office said a 31-year-old man who had been sitting on the tracks was killed.
Few other details were immediately available.
