LOGAN COUNTY, Kan. An employee with the Union Pacific Railroad died Sunday night in what the company calls “a train-related incident.”
It happened a little after 9 p.m. Sunday near Highway 83 and East Front Street in Oakley. As the accident remains under investigation, Union Pacific isn’t releasing details about the employee nor what led to the employee’s death.
A spokesperson for the company did say this is something they don’t often see.
“It’s a really difficult situation and our thoughts and prayers are with the employee’s family,” the UP spokesperson says.
