A man was hit and killed by a train early Monday morning in Stockton, according to Union Pacific.

Investigators say Mark Kritch Jr., 37, was laying on the tracks when he was struck at around 1:40 a.m.

“Our hearts go out to the family of friends of the individual who passed away,” Union Pacific spokesperson Aaron Hunt said in a written statement.

The train was heading from Lathrop to Minnesota.

Hunt said that the crew was put into a counseling support program.

“These incidents can be very impactful for the engineers and conductors as you can imagine,” Hunt wrote.

Union Pacific freight trains usually take at least a mile to come to a stop, according to Hunt.
