Snowmobiler killed by train

| No Comments

A Silver Lake man was killed Saturday after being hit by a train in Dassel, news sources report.

According to a report by the Star Tribune, the man, Paul Fenske, was riding his snowmobile near train tracks on Saturday night when he was struck and killed by a Burlington Northern Santa Fe train traveling in the same direction.

Authorities told the Star Tribune that Fenske lost control of his snowmobile, causing it to be caught by the path of the train. The man was pulled under the train and killed.

An article by the Pioneer Press states that although the train eventually stopped, its train's operators were initially unaware of the incident. Both authorities and the railroad are investigating the incident.
