A 56-year-old Logan man and former Carbon County resident was killed after being struck by a train in the area between Colton and the Emma Park turnoff on Nov. 30. Stanley Lawrence "Larry" Litizzette was on a railroad bridge while hunting with his son.

According to the son, Litizzette was walking on the railroad tracks and was on a railroad bridge that crossed over the Price River. The son reported that his father was struck by the train and thrown into the river. The son retrieved his father from the river and said it was obvious he was deceased.

The Utah County Sheriff's office reported that at about 1:53 p.m. that day dispatchers with Utah Valley Dispatch Special Service District received a call from Union Pacific Railroad Dispatch reporting that a man walking on the tracks was hit by a train and killed.

It happened in the area where the rail lines run near the highway at about mile marker 219.5 on Highway 6.

Litizzette was born in Price in 1957 to Stanley Victor and Edith Breznick Litizzette. He was raised in Helper, attended Notre Dame through middle school, and graduated from Carbon High School in 1975. He attended the College of Eastern Utah and worked in the area in various capacities. He later went to Utah State University in Logan and became an educator. He was a teacher at Mountain Crest High School in Cache County, where he had been teaching for 29 years.

The Utah County Sheriff's office reported that because of some unanswered questions about his death, Litizzette's body was taken to the Office of Medical Examiner in Salt Lake. The investigation into his death is ongoing.
