Intoxicated Man Just Avoids Getting Hit By Train

Posted: Updated:

An intoxicated man just avoids being hit by a train this morning after he was sitting on the tracks in the 1900 block of Main Ave. in Fargo.

Police say engineers on an Eastbound freight train traveling at a low rate of speed noticed the man sitting on the rails and began to honk their horn and stop the train.

The individual looked up and waved at engineers and then rolled off the tracks just before the train would've struck him. Police say the man did not suffer any injuries and have taken him to detox. They are considering pressing charges of trespassing on BNSF property.
