BEND, OR -- A 23-year-old Bend man survived being struck by a freight train, Sunday afternoon. Emergency crews were dispatched to the BNSF train depot near SE Third and Scott Street, at about 3:30 p.m. and determined Kyle Houser had been hit just east of the depot. 

 

Bend Police say Houser was walking northwest on the tracks, listening to music with headphones over his ears. A train approached behind him, blowing its horn to warn the man who had his back to the train. Houser didn't hear the train and was struck on the shoulder, which threw him from the tracks. The train was eventually able to stop, and remained in place for several hours, blocking traffic on SE Wilson.

 

Houser was taken to the hospital by ambulance, with non-life threatening injuries.
