December 20, 2018

BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) — Authorities have released the name of a 50-year-old man who died after his car was hit by a train in southern Montana.

The Billings Gazette reports Scott Graber, of Helena, was talking on his cellphone and likely did not see the train when he drove onto tracks near Hardin on Monday morning. The intersection has railroad markers but not an automated stop arm or flashing lights.

Graber, who was thrown from his car, died at a hospital in Billings.

Investigators do not think drugs, alcohol or speed played a role in the crash.
