Authorities in Western Nebraska have identified the Scottsbluff man who died Friday when he was struck by a freight train.

20-year-old Christopher Wadding was hit by a westbound Burlington
Northern Santa Fe railroad train around 3 a.m. Friday.

Police Captain Brian Wasson says Wadding had been lying on the
tracks before the accident.

Fingerprints were used to identify Wadding after family members told police that he hadn't been seen since about an hour before the crash.

Wasson says there is no evidence of foul play, and Wadding's family members did not believe he was suicidal.

Toxicology tests were performed, and the results are pending.
