The Eaton County sheriff's department says a train struck and killed a man who was lying on the tracks.

Sgt. Scott Brooks says the crash happened about 4 a.m. Sunday in Bellevue. It's about 12 miles northeast of Battle Creek.

Brooks says the department wasn't immediately releasing the dead man's name.

WILX-TV says the victim was dragged several blocks. It says the death closed the railroad crossing for several hours.
