Man Has Foot Severed By Train

FERNDALE, Pa. (AP) – Police in western Pennsylvania say a man had his right foot severed after he walked into an oncoming train.

Ferndale police told WJAC-TV that the man was walking along the sidewalk in the Cambria County borough Friday as the train approached on its way from Johnstown to Ferndale.

The engineer told officials that he blew the horn several times to alert the man, who police said was wearing a hoodie and talking on a phone.

Police are still investigating the accident.
