SPARTA, WI (WSAU) - A teenager is dead after being hit by a train in Sparta Monday.

The incident happened at 1:30 p.m. at Milwaukee Street and Walrath Street in the city of Sparta, when the 18-year-old crossed in front of a westbound Canadian Pacific freight train.

The teen was initially taken to Mayo Clinic Health Systems in Sparta, and died later at Gunderson Lutheran Hospital in La Crosse.

Sparta Police expect to release the teenager’s name and more details Wednesday.
