North Platte, Neb. — Authorities say a man killed at Union Pacific’s railroad yard in western Nebraska’s North Platte was run over by a fuel truck.
Station KNOP reports that the Nebraska State Patrol confirmed the victim’s name: Ryan Ziel.
Patrol spokesman Cody Thomas said Tuesday that the 22-year-old Ziel was driving the truck Saturday when he stopped to do a refueling.
Thomas says Ziel got out of the truck and then it ran over him. Thomas says investigators aren’t sure why the truck started moving.
