An Oshkosh man fishing next to some railroad tracks on Lake Winnebago has been struck and killed by a Canadian National train.
Oshkosh police Lt. Dona Wilson says the 65-year-old man was sitting on a bucket next to the railroad tracks when he was struck about 9:40 p.m. Saturday. Wilson says the man didn't hear the train coming and wasn't able to move out of the way in time.
Authorities say a lot of people fish near the area where the man was hit, even though it's private property owned by the railroad. WLUK-TV says despite posted signs, vehicles park along the dirt road nearby and cross the tracks to fish in the lake.
