The Denison Police Department, on Sunday evening, released the identity of the adult male who was hit by a train while on the Union Pacific Railroad tracks early Saturday morning as Kevin Russman, of Dow City.

The police department said that about 1:20 a.m., officers were dispatched to a report of a train/pedestrian collision at the crossing of South 15th Street and 5th Avenue South. 

Upon their arrival, they found a deceased male near the intersection, who was later identified as Russman.
