(GARY) - Lake County authorities say a 29-year-old Gary man has died after being struck by a freight train in the northwestern Indiana city.

The county coroner's office identifies the victim as 29-year-old Marques Maurice Rummage.

Gary police tell the Post-Tribune and The Times that Rummage was walking on the train trucks when he was struck by the train on Saturday afternoon.

Police say the train's engineer sounded the train's horn and applied the brakes but could not keep from striking the man.

Investigators are trying to determine why Rummage was walking along the tracks.
