FRESNO (AP) ― Authorities say one person is dead and a second person hospitalized after they were hit by a freight train in Fresno on Wednesday afternoon.

Fresno police Lt. Mike Doyle told local media the pair appeared to be walking together when they were hit by a southbound train around 4 p.m.

Police haven't released the names of the two people, but say the person killed was a woman in her 30s.

The person who was injured was a man in his 40s. Doyle says he was in stable condition in a local hospital, where he was being treated for a broken pelvis.
