Train hits man on Union Pacific RR tracks in Tempe

Posted

A pedestrian was hit by a train in Tempe early Sunday morning, police said.

The 37-year-old man, who has been hospitalized, was walking southbound on the Union Pacific Railroad tracks at about 4:15 a.m. Sunday, April 9, near 13th Street and Farmer Avenue when the collision occurred, police said.

The train also was heading south when it struck him with its cattle guard.

“The train had used its horn in an effort to alert the subject, however the subject made no attempts to leave the train tracks despite these audible warnings,” Tempe police said in a release.

The man was seriously injured, according to police, but was in stable condition late Sunday morning.
