Spokane Valley police are investigating the death of a man struck by a train and killed early this morning along the Burlington Northern-Santa Fe Railway line near North Park Road and East Trent Avenue.

Police have few details at this point, just that it happened around 1 a.m. There’s really not enough information to judge at this point, but the ‘Bridging the Valley’ series of projects is designed to seperate trains from both vehicle and pedestrian traffic and may have been able to prevent an incident like this. Here’s more on Bridging the Valley in case you’re not familiar with it.
