Investigation continues into March 21 train incident

An injury incident in southeast Emporia a week ago is still under investigation.

Deputy Police Chief Ed Owens says the incident happened late March 21 on the Burlington Northern Santa Fe tracks near Cottonwood Street. 

A 30-year-old man was found laying on the center track after apparently being hit by one train and at least two trains passed him on adjoining tracks.

The man was first taken to Newman Regional Health and later airlifted to Wesley Medical Center.  

It's unclear how the man got to the tracks or what led to his injuries. The investigation continues.
