RODERFIELD, W.Va. (AP) — West Virginia State Police say a man was killed when he was struck by a Norfolk Southern train on a bridge in McDowell County.

Trooper J.R. Coburn in Welch says a 20-year-old male died at the scene and a 24-year-old female who fell 60 feet was in critical condition at Welch Community Hospital.

Their names weren't immediately released.

Coburn says the three were walking on the tracks Thursday night near Roderfield.
