A train struck and killed a person in Winona Friday night.

KEYC says it happened just before 11 p.m.

The person – whose identity has not been released yet – was pronounced dead at the scene, authorities tell the Post Bulletin.

This is the fourth time this year a pedestrian has been killed by a train in Winona, the paper reports.

The first incident happened in January. A 25-year-old Winona State University student fell on the tracks early one morning and was struck.

Then in February, a 63-year-old man crawled under a stationary train and was run over when it started moving.

The third incident happened later that month. The Winona Daily News reported the man had been sitting on the tracks and smoking a cigarette prior to getting hit.
