WRIGHT CITY, Mo. (AP) - An eastern Missouri man is dead after being struck by a train.

Authorities say 30-year-old Eric Korte of Wright City was unconscious while sitting next to Norfolk Southern tracks late Sunday night. A westbound Union Pacific engine struck his hand, causing Korte to sit up, when he was struck by the second train car.

The Warren County coroner pronounced him dead at the scene.
