Man and dog killed by train

Posted: Updated:

A man and his dog were killed after they were hit by a train in Troutdale. 

Union Pacific says two people and their dog were walking along the tracks near northeast 207th avenue at 11:20 a.m. Thursday, when their dog got loose and ran in front of an oncoming train. 
They say one of the people with the dog tried to save it, but both were hit and killed. 

The man's name has not been released. Officials say he was trespassing, and was not near a railroad crossing when he was hit. 

Fairview police are investigating.
