Two hunters were killed Saturday in separate accidents across Western New York.

In Westfield, a hunter was struck by a train Saturday, and in Oakfield a hunter dies after being accidentally shot.

In Genesee County...

The NYS Environmental Conservation Police are investigating a fatal hunter shooting that occurred off of Hutton Road, in Oakfield.

The victim's name is not being made public until family can be told. He was hunting with 3 friends when shot.

He was taken to United Memorial Medical Center in Batavia, where crews tried to rescuscitate him but he later died.

In Chautauqua County...

A hunter was killed early Saturday morning in Westfield, on train tracks when he was hit by an oncoming train.

James Kuzma, 58 of Dunkirk, was headed westbound along the Norfolk-Southern Tracks near Walker Road, when struck from behind, police said.

It does not look like Kuzma was aware of the train, nor did he evidently hear it, police said.

Kuzma was pronounced dead at the scene.
