DEATH: Man killed by Amtrak train southwest of Tri-Cities By John Trumbo, Tri-City Herald staff writer

A 47-year-old Bend, Ore., man was killed this morning when he was hit by an Amtrak train while hunting with two friends from Kennewick.

The accident happened at 6:30 a.m. about 10 miles east of Roosevelt, Wash., along Highway 14 and the Columbia River, said the Benton County Sheriff's Office.

The man, whose name was not released, was apparently trying to catch a hunting dog that had wandered near the railroad tracks. It's not clear why he was not aware of the on-coming train.
