RIVERSIDE, Calif. (AP) — Southern California police say a man accused of fatally pushing a woman in front of a freight train has been arrested.

The woman was hit by the train Monday morning in the city of Riverside.

Police say that the woman and the man identified as 41-year-old Kevin Errol Lewis were in an argument next to the railroad tracks that turned physical.

Police say Lewis shoved the woman he was in a dating relationship with into the path of the oncoming train, killing her.

It was not immediately clear whether Lewis had an attorney who could speak on his behalf.
