GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. ” The owner of a Grand Junction bar says employees and customers offered to give another patron a ride home less than an hour before the man’s remains were found scattered near a railroad crossing in Clifton.

Mesa County coroner’s officials say 28-year-old Aaron David Rudder of Grand Junction was the man struck and killed by a Union Pacific freight train early Tuesday.

The cause of death was determined to be multiple injuries, but officials say the manner of death is pending a review of toxicology results and scene investigation.

DJ’s Roadhouse owner Duane Clark says Rudder came into the bar Monday night, drank a pitcher of beer, and left around 12:15 a.m. Tuesday.

Clark says several people offered Rudder a ride home, but he declined.
