OREM — A man died early Thursday morning when he was hit by a train while walking across tracks, officials said.

At 4:53 a.m., the man was walking side-by-side with another person and crossing the tracks to get to the FrontRunner train platform at Orem Central Station. The other person saw the approaching train and ran ahead to avoid the train but the man was hit, according to the Utah Transit Authority.

It appeared the man didn't notice the train, UTA said.

The man's name was not immediately released.
