FERNLEY, Nev. (AP) -- A man was struck and killed by a train while walking the tracks in Fernley, about 30 miles east of Reno.
 
Lyon County sheriff's Sgt. Jeremy Grundy says Union Pacific officials sounded the horn and tried to stop the train Friday afternoon, but the man did not respond and never moved.
 
The man, whose name was not immediately released, was struck from behind by the westbound train near the Pilot Travel Center.
 
The 2:45 p.m. accident is under investigation.
