SAGINAW, Mich. (WLNS)- Police say that a 20-year-old man who dived under a train to get away from police lost both his legs.
WSGW-AM reports that the police were looking for a robbery suspect when they saw a driver make an improper turn.
When police tried to stop him, he abandoned his vehicle and attempted to run from police on foot when a train blacked his path.
The young man tried to go under the train but was dragged 1,000 feet before the train could stop.
Police say the train cut off one of his legs. Our media partners at MLive report his other leg needed to be amputated at a hospital, but he is expected to survive.
Police also say the man had two misdemeanor traffic warrants for his arrest.
