MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Three people were killed since midnight in transportation-related accidents throughout Wisconsin -- two of them involving passing trains.

In Dane County, police said a 63-year-old Madison area man died after being hit by a train near McFarland. Police were called around midnight, and they do not suspect foul play.

In Wauwatosa, a pedestrian was killed by a passing train around 9 a.m. The Milwaukee County medical examiner's office was called. Other details were not immediately available.

Also, a 58-year-old Racine man died Thursday morning in a one-car crash near Wisconsin Dells. The State Patrol said the driver was ejected, and a passenger was also injured.

It happened around 6:25 a.m. on westbound Interstate 90-94. Troopers said the vehicle drove into the median, overcorrected, went into the right ditch, and rolled over.

The driver was thrown from the car. An investigation continues.
