MONUMENT, Colo. - A man was hit and killed by a train in Monument on Tuesday night.
The train's conductor called authorities just after 11:30 p.m. and said he thought he hit someone.
Deputies from the El Paso County Sheriff's Office told KRDO-TV that they found a man dead near Park Trail Drive and Blizzard Valley Trail. The sheriff's office said the man's injuries were consistent with being hit by a train.
Investigators are trying to determine why the man was on the tracks.
"We're trying to determine if this was a person trying to be on the railroad tracks in an act of suicide versus some other circumstances," El Paso County Lt. Jeff Kramer said.
