LONDON, Ky. (AP) - Authorities say a Laurel County teenager was killed when he was struck by a train.

According to WKYT-TV (https://bit.ly/1DjWQqY), the incident occurred around 3 a.m. Saturday in the Lily community about seven miles south of London, Kentucky.

Investigators didn’t provide details, but they said 17-year-old William Walters, of Keavy, was waiting on some friends to return when he was struck by the northbound CSX train. He died at the scene.

A Laurel County deputy coroner said Walters’ cause of death was “multiple injuries” from a “freak accident.”

Officials say there are no lights in the area where Walters was hit.
