Train hits, injures man

A Letcher County man was seriously injured on the night of July 26 when he was hit by a train near Woodrock.

Officials said Harlan Collins, age and address unknown, was lying on the railroad tracks about a mile from Blackey last Thursday as a CSX train approached. He apparently woke up and was attempting to jump out of the way when he was struck.

Collins suffered a broken leg in the incident and was flown to a trauma center.
