A man was hit by a train early Monday morning on tracks located near West Martin Street and North Medina Street, north of downtown San Antonio. San Antonio police said they are still investigating the incident.

The police said that the train engineer saw the man on the train tracks and attempted to stop the train but failed to do so.

Officials further said that the train was actually moving slower through the area reaching just about 20 miles per hour.

The victim was stuck. He was, however conscious and breathing when he was brought to an area hospital for immediate treatment.

A tweet from journalist Max Massey (@MaxMasseyTV) says: “Officers tell me one man sustained severe head injuries after he was hit by this train.”

The authorities have yet to release the man’s identity and other pertinent details. It also remains unclear what he was doing on the train tracks. It has yet to be clarified if he got there deliberately despite the known dangers, or if it was all an accident, for whatever reasons.

West Martin Street between Frio Street and Colorado Street have been temporarily closed as emergency crews were dispatched to work at the scene.

This is a developing story.

My heart breaks for this poor man who may have been in a very sad place. So many people are depressed and suicidal on earth today. I'm not saying this was the situation, but train tracks are like glue for those in a deep state of depression.

If we had Free Suicide & Disposal booths it would avoid a lot crazies looking for Death Police, Mass Murder exit for a name in history and/or taking out family members.
