MINOT, N.D. (AP) — Authorities have released the name of a 19-year-old man killed when he was struck by a train while walking in Minot.

Ward County Sheriff's officials say Anthony Ray Forsman of Minot was walking west on the tracks early Saturday morning when a Burlington Northern train approached from the east.

Forsman reportedly turned around and began walking away from the train, but did not get off the tracks as the train sounded its approach.

Authorities say he struck as the train attempted to stop. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Officials say Forsman had parked his truck on top of a hill and walked down a steep embankment onto the tracks.
