RODERFIELD, West Virginia — 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. A 29-year-old male who jumped from the tracks suffered less serious injuries.

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