A 54-year-old Vancouver man has been identified as the motorist killed Sunday when a train struck a car on railroad tracks in east Vancouver.

The Clark County Medical Examiner on Thursday reported that Scott DeMoss died of multiple blunt-force injuries. His death was ruled accidental.

The crash, which involved a BNSF Railway train, occurred about 9 p.m. Sunday in the 19500 block of Southeast Evergreen Highway near the Vancouver-Camas border. The car had been pushed to north of the tracks and down an embankment.

Emergency crews reported finding one deceased occupant inside the vehicle.

Nobody on the train was reported injured.
