BELLINGHAM, Wash. (AP) - A man has died after being hit by a train in Bellingham, Washington.

Gus Melonas, a spokesman with Burlington Northern Santa Fe, told The Bellingham Herald that around 4:30 a.m., Saturday, a middle-aged man was on the railroad tracks at the road crossing at Boulevard Park when he was hit by a train.

Melonas says the train, which was empty, was traveling from Canada back into Washington.

The man died, Melonas said. No other information about the man was immediately available.
