Teen Hit by Train in Obetz
OBETZ -- A teenage boy was hospitalized after a train struck him Wednesday evening near Chandler Road.
Sharon Martin, a woman who lives in the area, said she saw a group of boys walking around the tracks before she saw one person being carried away on a stretcher.
A man who has identified himself as the victim's grandfather said the boy is 16 years old and may lose his leg.
Authorities did not immediately release an official statement about the incident.
Martin said this was not the first time she has seen people walking in that area.
"I hope these kids learn from this, to not be back on those tracks," Martin said. "It's not a playground."
