LARAMIE, Wyo. — A 54-year-old man has died after being run over by a train near Laramie.

The Albany County Sheriff's Office has not released a name, but it says the victim appeared to be a transient.

Authorities were notified about 8:45 a.m. Wednesday of an injured man on the railroad tracks about a half-mile north of the Laramie city limits. The man was taken to Ivinson Memorial Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

The initial investigation indicated that the man was either struck or had fallen under the wheels of a train.

Union Pacific Railroad officials are also assisting in the investigation.
