ULSTER, N.Y. (AP) - State police are still trying to determine why a 21-year-old Ulster County man was on railroad tracks where he was struck by a freight train, severing his right arm and leg.
    
Troopers say Nick Ogden of the town of Ulster was found next to the CSX tracks in his hometown around 7 a.m. Saturday. Police say someone on a passing train reported seeing a body near the tracks.
    
When troopers arrived, they found the severely injured Ogden conscious and alert. He's in critical condition at Westchester Medical Center.
