UPDATE: Salem Police said Tuesday they were able to reach the victim's family.

Salem Police are asking for the public's help in locating the family of a man who was hit by a train on Aug. 2.

The victim has been identified as 55-year-old Wesley James Crossman. Investigators have been unable to locate Crossman's family to notify them of his death.

Crossman was hit by a train in the early morning of Aug. 2 along the Union Pacific Railroad's rail line at 14th and Hines Street SE. An investigation by the Salem Police Traffic Team found that Crossman was walking along the track as the northbound train neared. The train's crew sounded the horn and attempted to stop but were unable, according to police. Crossman was pronounced dead at the scene.

Investigators are asking anyone who knows Crossman or his family to call the traffic team at 503-588-6293.
