DENVER (AP) — The Denver coroner's office has identified a man killed by a light-rail train as 19-year-old Harry Exner of Red Wing, Minn.

Exner died Tuesday when he was struck by a light-rail train southwest of downtown Denver. Police Detective John White says the accident is being investigated.

It's unclear why Exner was in the area, which is fenced off.

Regional Transportation District spokeswoman Daria Serna says Exner was trespassing on the transit district's property. She says there's clear evidence the train operator tried to stop, but couldn't.
