A Northern Kentucky man was killed after being struck by a train on March 16.
Kyle Vallandingham, 20, was pronounced dead at the scene around 5:55 p.m. by Grant County Coroner Robert McDaniel.
Vallandingham, a former resident of Dry Ridge, was walking south along the railroad tracks near Showplace Landscaping, about a mile south of Crittenden, with a friend, Dustin Orr.
Police said Orr told them that when the two heard the train’s whistle they jumped from one set of train tracks to the other and that Vallandingham was struck from behind.
