The Oklahoma Highway Patrol said a man lying on railroad tracks in Atoka County was killed when he was struck by a freight train late Wednesday.

The OHP report states the 70-car Union Pacific train was headed south when it struck Littleton at a railroad crossing on the east side of Tushka at 11 p.m.

The train's engineer and conductor were not injured.
