Man Hit By Car, Then Train 6 Hours Later

BOULDER, Colo. -- A man was hospitalized after he was hit by a train while walking his bicycle across a railroad bridge in Boulder, Colo., early Wednesday, about six hours after he was hit by a car, local station KMGH reported.

Police said it was the second trip to the emergency room in six hours for the man.

According to authorities, Robert Evans, 46, was clipped by an empty Burlington Northern Santa Fe coal train.
Boulder police spokeswoman Sarah Huntley said Evans was found 10 feet under a bridge, and was taken to Boulder Community Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

The bridge, which is about 50 feet long, is only wide enough to accommodate the train tracks. It is intended for trains only and is marked with warning signs to deter pedestrians from using it.

Evans is facing a possible ticket for trespassing, according to police.

On Tuesday around 10 p.m., police said Evans was struck by a hit-and-run driver while riding his bicycle at the intersection of Folsom Street and Canyon Boulevard in Boulder. Police are looking for the driver who left the scene.

Evans was released from the hospital at 3 a.m. and was heading back to his camp outside town when he was hit by the train.
