La Crosse man dies after being hit by train
New Richmond Wisconsin 127 South Knowles Avenue 54017

A La Crosse man died Sunday, after being hit by a train on Friday afternoon. Authorities said Ryan Lange, 26, was on foot when he was hit by a Canadian Pacific freight train in Dresbach, Minn., just northwest of La Crosse.

Winona County investigators interviewed several witnesses - but they could not figure out why Lange was on the tracks, or if the train's engineer saw him before hitting him.

The railroad says it will conduct its own probe. Lange died at a La Crosse hospital.
