Train nearly hits man in Madison County

Madison County -

A train nearly hits a man in Madison County, and that man ends up in handcuffs.

Madison County's EOC Director Butch Hammack tells us around 6:00 Sunday evening, a train conductor observed a man sitting on the side of the tracks. The conductor thought he may have hit that man, so he stopped the train to check. Hammack tells us the man was not hit, but he did run away.

Authorities caught up to him a short time later and arrested him.

We have a call in to the Madison County Sheriff's Department for more information. We'll pass that along when it becomes available.
