Man survives run-in with train

  • Print

A 29-year-old man lost a race with a train Saturday night — and survived, generally intact.

But facing a long list of charges, however, including driving while disqualified.

Const. Jason Michalyshen said that the man attempted to outrun a freight train at Fermor Avenue near Archibald Street just before 10 p.m. Saturday, despite flashing lights and warning bells.

The man hit the side of the second locomotive.

The suspect remains in custody.
