The man killed when he was hit by a train in Mendota is from La Salle.

The La Salle County Coroner’s Office says 69-year-old Everett Engelhaupt of La Salle was pronounced dead just after 11:30 Monday morning at a crossing on First Avenue on the east side of town. Investigators think he intentionally stepped out in front of a freight train.

The crossing was closed and emergency personnel and the coroner were on the scene for over four hours after the crash.
