A man died after he was hit by a train on Saturday in Norman, police said.

Kurt Seifert, 48, of Norman, died as a result of his injuries at Norman Regional Hospital.

About 9:35 p.m., police were called to the railroad crossing at Duffy Street. A man had been hit by a northbound train on the tracks. 

Initial reports indicated a group of people including Seifert crossed the tracks when the crossing signals and train warning devices were activated.
