GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) — Authorities have identified a body found in a Grand Forks rail yard as a University of North Dakota student from Minneapolis.

The body of 20-year-old Blake Ayling was found Saturday morning in a BNSF Railway yard near campus.

Authorities say their preliminary investigation determined that Ayling was going through the yard when he was struck by a train.

The official cause of death won’t be determined until after an autopsy is done.
