DENVER (AP) - Union Pacific Railroad officials say a person was struck and killed by a freight train in Denver.

Company spokesman Mark Davis tells The Denver Post (https://goo.gl/3sfLRG ) the victim, whose name, age and gender have not been released, was hit near Louisiana Boulevard just before 11 a.m. Thursday and died about three hours later.

Davis says it’s unclear why the person climbed onto the tracks.

The train with 41 cars and three locomotives was leaving Denver and headed to Pueblo carrying grain, scrap metal, lumber and lime.
