BNSF identifies worker killed in railyard accident
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Burlington Northern Santa Fe railroad officials have identified a worker who was killed in a railyard accident.
BNSF spokesman Steve Forsberg says 44-year-old Sam W. Lundy had worked for the railway for 17 years. Lundy worked in switching operations. He is survived by a wife and three children.
Railroad spokeswoman Sue Ann Lundsberg says Lundy was riding on a car that left the tracks and pinned him against a building. Lundy died at the scene.
Forsberg says it's unclear what caused the car to derail.
