SAWYER, Okla. (KXII) - A man is dead after he was hit by a coal train in Sawyer Sunday morning.

Choctaw County Sheriff Terry Park said the man parked his truck after a minor accident near the Sawyer Dam before walking about a 1/2 mile down the tracks.

Park says the man might have been drunk and passed out on the train tracks. We're told a train came by around 10 a.m. and the man died on impact.

His name has not been released.

The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation has been called in to help.
